    Don't get behind on class scheduling! Plan on taking 5 classes per year to graduate, and badger your advisors often if you aren't getting the classes you need!

    If you're living in the west than apply for WUE it makes school affordable. Bring a car if you can-you'll make tons of friends! Parking passes are expensive though. Visit campus-you'll fall in love with this school!

    Get involved in any clubs or community events you take an interest in, because participating will help you make new friends, increase your personal networks, and will look great on graduate school applications. Take in-depth notes. You never know when you may forget something or need an extra bit of information to memorize for a test question. Do not be afraid to ask questions, the staff and instructors are there to help you. Form good relationships with your advisers and instructors. They will benefit you when you eventually need letters of recommendation. If you join a club, do not let the club get in the way of what's really important; your schoolwork! If you don't have time to go to an event due to schoolwork, then don't go or your grade might suffer.

    Get your books ahead of time! The closest textbook seller gets extremely busy (a line down the block) at the beginning of the semester and you won't be happy if you have to wait two hours to get one book. Also, take advantage of the library! Not only does it have tons of physical books, but there are computers wired up to all the online databases, there are quiet study rooms, and tons of space to work on projects! Even though it may seem weird at first, approach at least one professor early in the semester. The willingness to help and friendliness of your professors might shock you!
