Learn time management!! Join some kind of organization to meet people!
Shannon from Marietta, GA
If you know you&#39;re considering this school, apply early or on time so you can turn all of your documents in and so you won&#39;t be stressed. Also apply for dorms as possible as you can, DO NOT WAIT or you&#39;ll be stuck in a ran down building with community bathrooms. And most importantly, have fun but also stay focused. Be social and get involved! If you don&#39;t, the school may seem boring to you but I think that applies at any school. If you&#39;re shy, this is your chance to break that.

Go to every class! Alot of my teachers will give extra credit on random days just for being there. Sign up for scholarships early! Check out arbor view apartments if you want to live on campus.
Patricia from Newnan, GA
UWG wasn't my first choice but I thank God He knows what's best. I had the chance to become part on an on/campus ministry called BCF and met THE most amazing people through it. Carrollton overall is quiet and great for studies. That being said, the sort of college experience you have there is up to you. If you plan on attending UWG, my advise to you is that you make it your goal to surround yourself with positive and like/minded people who want to succeed and accomplish the goals set before them because remember, you become the company the keep. All the best to you!
Salome - Powder Springs, GA
As I have stated before, use your time wisely! The biggest change from high school to college is the responsibility. Set a pace for yourself and you'll do fine. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE! Procrastination leads to the overwhelming feeling and eventually becomes your enemy.

The website www.ratemyprofessor.com is really handy. Check it out.
Stephanie from Temple, GA
Be sure to use your time wisely and study. Time management is very important when you get to college. Don't get me wrong it's good to have fun and hang out with your friends, but you must remember what you went to school for in the first place. If you play around your first year you will regret it in your years to come.
Kelby from Cartersville, GA
1. Visit the campus if you are interested in attending.
2. Talk to Professors and Students.
3. Apply early to be considered for scholarships.
4. Do your BEST in High School...it will matter.
Malcolm from Fayetteville, GA
Don't skip classes and get involved in clubs and organizations on campus! I would also say that even if you don't have to, live on campus for at least one semester to get to know other students and to get involved more easily.
Ashley from Carrollton, GA
My tips for possible students is get familiar with the campus before classes start. Once classes start begin studying, don't wait because you can easy fall behind. Last but not least join some clubs, get involved. These are you best years so have some fun.
Rashaunna from Stone Mountain, GA
If someone looks younger than 18, there is a good chance that they are. There is an early-entrance program on campus that has had a student that was 12. The youngest in a while had been 14, though. Most Academy students or Gunnies (as they're sometime's called) are 16 to 18 because USUALLY the program accepts only high school juniors and seniors. Make a high enough score on the A�¡T or SAT, there's a good chance that they'd ask you to come even younger. So, just make sure to be wary. You can get a bad rep for trying to date too many children. (There was one guy who became interested in a Gunn girl roughly once a year or once every other year. So far, each have had a Korean roommate.) Also, these Academites don't just come from the United States. While I was there, we had Koreans, Catalans (small, proud area of Spain around Barcelona), Indians (India subcontinent), and one Chinese American.
The food at the cafeteria is not that bad until you've had it for seven months. The Z-6 is on the other side of campus from most classes and dorms, but when I was in my last semester there (Spring 2012), there was a rumor of a new cafeteria being put in on the busy end of campus. You'll probably still get sick of the food eventually, but at least it's not quite as much of a hike.
Take honors Astronomy with Powell, if he's still there. The only difference is that you have a different book from standard astronomy and that the lab is required. UWG requires at least two sciences with a lab, so just get it out of the way. The lab's easy as well. Just don't get upset if a TA runs the lab. When Powell's in the class, though, try not to start stupid tangents because he will get offended. He won't do anything, but he may end up giving you weird looks whenever you even have a legitimate question. Also, he tends to tell a lot of anecdotes. Don't question it; you WILL get through the material.
It's best not to take Powell for Physics, though. I didn't, but my roommate of the time ...
