    Don't be afraid to talk to your professors. You're the reason they're there! If you like a small, homey atmosphere, this is your place.

    The professor can make or break a class for you. Make sure you look up, ask about, or otherwise inform yourself about professors in advance to give yourself the best possible chance of success (but also remember to take reviews with a grain of salt).

    Don't let yourself get trapped in the UP bubble. (This is something my friends and I have to remind ourselves every year) So, don't be lazy about taking advantage of the public transportation system and make plans to go out and explore Portland. The school is located on a bluff in NW Portland, but that shouldn't stop you from going out to places like Alberta Street, Mississippi Avenue, NW 23rd Street, or even downtown Portland. The public transportation system is super easy to navigate and if you have any questions or concerns, your Freshman Workshop Leader can be your guide to the city (you'll find out who/what that is later in the summer... expect a call from them!) Definitely push yourself to get involved. There are a lot of awesome clubs and organizations with caring and talented individuals ready to meet you. Just remember that what you get from these clubs, organizations, and people, depends on the amount of effort you put in to contribute.

    Take advantage of all the resources! Visit the Freshman Resource Center and Writing Center at least once a semester, they can help you stay on track and help you with every aspect of being a college student.

    Stay over night with a student to get a real feel for campus life. Ask lots of questions. Don't be afraid to go explore campus on your own. **IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN NURSING - EVEN JUST SLIGHTLY-- DECLARE YOURSELF AS A NURSING MAJOR** They get a lot of preferential treatment when it comes to registering for classes - and the first two semesters are all core classes anyway - but it's far easier to start as a nursing major than try to transfer into the nursing school.
