    I suggest researching how well known UNR is for the specific major. For those that are undecided on their career, I suggest going to a community college rather than wasting time with costly expenses.

    After a class, complete said homework for class. It is inevitable to fall behind on assignments otherwise. Eat at each place on campus at least once per semsester. Sit at the front of a course if it is not online, the teacher will be more inclined to help and learning is improved.

    New students should keep an open-mind and be excited to come here. Do not feel stressed or overwhelmed because there is always a professor or tutor around to help. The campus has many resources, such as tutoring, counseling, and study sessions to help students succeed in their academics. When I first started here, I was a little nervous, but then I came to realize that there is so much help on campus. People want you to succeed and want you to learn.
