    Visit! Stay overnight and find out if UR is the best place for you. Look at all the opportunities UR has to offer for freshman like the living learning communities and the programs that allow you to have research your first year! Remember that it is perfectly okay to be homesick for the first few nights(: and keep your head up! If it seems tough at first, take some time to adjust and do not be afraid to ask for help.

    Do not attend if you are at all interested in school spirit, turn out at sporting events or club meetings. Especially do not attend if, like myself, you are interested in the music program. The ensembles are all mixed with community members and students (this might be ok, but I want an all student option) and there is no marching band. The pep band is only at basketball games and has only 15 or so members, most of whom are from the community, not students. Academics are not impressive if you are not in the Business School. Most other departments are above average to average, while anything related to mathematics is hopeless.

    Engage with your fellow colleagues and the professors. Take advantage of the campus tours, student mentor program and join the SGA committees. Learn the history of the University and volunteer to get a sense of pride behind the institution and the invaluable resources that are available to you.

    If you weren't born into a family with money, be prepared to meet people who were. Definitely get as involved as possible during your first semester, because then you'll have built the bonds of friendship with a lot of different groups. The first semester is also a great time to get into a balance of doing homework and spending time with all the friends you'll be making. I don't think it's possible to do well in a class here without spending an hour each night (Mon-Fri) on related material.
