    Do not buy your books at the downtown bookstore unless you absolutely have to! There are much cheaper options out there. Also, go to class everyday!

    Study, and GO. TO. CLASS. It seems so obvious, but going to class, even when it seems like it's not necessary, is SO important. Even if your class has all the notes online, or doesn't take off attendance points, GO!! You'll regret it if you don't!

    Take a tour, especially when classes are in session. You will get a great feel for the atmosphere. Also, be sure to explore all three campuses, there is so much to see! Select a dorm on the campus where most of your classes will be. This allows you to get a little bit of extra rest in the morning.
