  1. Don’t be scared!
  2. Bring a mini fridge with a freezer for those late night study sessions when you need ice cream and pizza bites.
  3. Don’t go home for the first month, at least. It’s hard at first, but I promise it will get better.
  4. Don’t be afraid to talk to new people. Everyone is trying to make friends just like you.
  5. Go to the shuttle at least 15 minutes before your class because it isn’t always on time everyday.
  6. Don’t even chance bringing items into your dorm that aren’t allowed, because if you get caught it will only inconvenience you in the end.
  7. Make sure to always have quick, microwaveable meals in your dorm for the times when you get hungry and the dining hall is closed.
  8. Avoid signing up for the 8ams if your parents have been waking you up for school for the past 4 years…
  9. Sit in the front of your class to give your professor a good impression.
  10. Attend the events on campus, it’s a good way to meet new people with the same interests as you!
