    For all colleges, not just this one, time management is key for a successful college experience. Once you can manage your time successfully, you're golden. As for specifically this school, watch out when walking as there are bikers, longboarders, and scooterers everywhere. Oh and if you are walking across a crosswalk in the street and get hit by a university vehicle, you get free tuition!

    Don't slack off at the end of your senior year because doing homework and going to class does nothing but get harder when college hits. I would also recommend applying early if you can. Make sure your recommendation letters are from the right teachers. Here's my biggest tip: Don't turn down UNCW for another school based on prestige. Truly we are without a football team and lack tailgating but it surely makes us unique. It's a beautiful school with amazing professors- and it also takes many more AP credits than similar schools.

    Go to class and you'll have no problem passing your classes. Teachers keep you interested so you're constantly learning. Never forget that the library is your friend and a great place to do homework. Look into joining clubs and Greek life so as to stay connected and meet people on campus.

    Have a strong application going into UNCW. Once getting into the University and becoming a student, live on campus your first year to meet as many people as you can. Get involved in everything the school has to offer that you are interested in, the more involved, the more you get out of the University! Use all of the resources provided by the school and create good relationships to last a lifetime!

    1) Read your textbooks as they give an in-depth understanding of concepts that may or may not have been taught in class. 2) Read the syllabus for each class, it really does answer any questions you might have regarding your teacher's rules and regulations. 3) Get involved! It's so easy to just hang out in your room watching Netflix whenever you're out of class, but joining clubs or other extracurricular activities will help you make new friends and fond memories, and even give you experiences to situations that may help you later in life. Plus, getting involved looks good on resumes! 4) Take advantage of all the resources UNCW has to offer, such as the writing/math lab, SI sessions, tutors, etc. These resources are set up specifically to help you and they're free!
