    Wear comfortable shoes if you plan on walking, if you're not use the it the walk up the hill is a bit tough. Also, just be yourself, everyone is really accepting.

    I would recommend that incoming students give themselves 10 to 20 minutes to walk up the hill, depending on the location of your dorm. Get to class 10 minutes early to find a front row seat. I would also recommend studying hard for exams, as they are not that easy. Ask teachers for help and they will help you. Find people to study with, and go to the tutor center if you need additional help.

    Make time to study!!! Its okay to tell your friends every now and then that you have to stay in and study, chances are they do too. You are here for your education overall, but dont overwhelm yourslf too much. Give yourself days to go out and just experience college life. It's a time in your life that you will never get back and you need to get out and experience it. Also, get involved!! This is major on Westerns campus, there is something for everyone. By getting involved you not only are bettering yourself, but also your community, so technically its a win, win situation. Do your best in class and outside class, but give yourself a break every once in a while and you will be successful on the hill.

    Visit a professor/department of your intended major. WKU is so large that it's easy to get caught up in it all and miss the details.
