What Students Are Saying
Also, don't think that you have to be involved with every opportunity offered to you--I certainly am not. Give yourself time to adjust to your new schedule, friends, and surroundings. It's a big change for everyone, and time is the best way to help yourself adjust. Don't feel the need to rush into every opportunity offered to you in your first semester. Take time to explore and see what interests you.
2. Name your interest, and you will find a club. If not, start your own!
3. You don't have to spend a lot of money to have a lot of fun.
2. If you are afraid to meet new people then this isn't the place for you, either. This campus is large and the population is large but there are so many opportunities to find your niche. There's clubs, events, dorm houses, etc. that you will be able to find that small group closeness on this university. However, you have to initiate.
3. Don't think that just because this is a public university that it is much easier to get into than private universities or that the rigorousness of this college is not up to par with private universities. If you want to attend a great university, that university should also want great students.
For those accepted: Sign up for the earliest orientation you can make. That's where you'll be registering for you fall semester classes, and there might not be seats in the classes at the times you want. It's not necessary to know exactly what you're going to major in (people don't need to declare until sophomore year), but it's useful to have a general idea. You'll meet your adviser during orientation and he or she will, well, advise you, as well. Otherwise, follow deadlines, and have fun! Oh, if you forget to bring stuff with you to your dorm, it's ok. During Welcome Week, UMN will bus people to Target for a midnight run.
2) Take time to read the textbook examples and explanations if you still don't understand something the professor taught.
3) Go to any review sessions your teacher or other students are having. You WILL benefit.
4) Ask questions until you FULLY understand.
5) Don't depend on the final to bring up your grade. If you do poorly on one midterm, that's usually already a third of your grade down the drain. So never wing a midterm!!!!
6) Find a favorite place to study. Not a favorite place to take a nap.
7) Learn the Gopher Way, the series of underground tunnels that let you get to class while staying warm during the winter.
8) The Humphrey Center, on West Bank, and the Music Library in Ferguson Hall, are two secret study places that no one seems to know about. Also, the Nolte Center, on East Bank, is a cozy home setting that's great for quiet study time.
