    Take up opportunities to meet people you don't know, people are really friendly here especially in the first few weeks when everyone is looking for friends. Walk around and go to events on campus, and get involved in clubs. If you smoke, hanging around the designated smoking areas is honestly a great way to meet new people. I've met a good amount of my friends that way. (if you don't smoke then best not to start still though). If possible, set up your classes back to back and spread them out throughout the week, it's better to get the day done early. There's really not much you can do with an hour or so in-between classes other than eat and likely lose motivation to even go to the next class. If you're a bio major, don't let the 200-level classes intimidate you. They're notoriously bad and often turn people off biology but classes are great after that (advice from other older bio majors I know). Get in a good routine for doing your work and pacing it throughout the week, all it takes is about two weeks of sticking to it and it becomes easy to keep up. Don't walk around alone at night, especially not on the weekends.

    Make sure to do your best and get scholarships to cover your bills. It can be hard to go to school and work but is possible if necessary.

    don't be shy. there are plenty of amazing people, groups, and communities throughout unm and beyond. join clubs, go to events, concerts parties, meet with professors and other students within your major, just get out of your shell and say hello. you never know who you'll meet.

    Don't plan all your classes on the same day!-- It gets overwhelming. Leave a gap for lunch (or get out by lunchtime) and plan your classes close to each other so you're not running from one ed of the campus to the next.

    Never pass up a time to speak with an advisor as they might give you valuable insight to help you learn and achieve. If a professor offers office hours and you are struggling, make sure to go and visit them, that is what they are paid for.
