Advice to New Students: 1) Go to classes. Staying motivated is very difficult. But, going to class is important because it ultimately saves you time. This is because you not only learn what to know, but also what is unimportant. This will make your study time easier. Also, this is college and it is socially acceptable to wear your pajamas to an 8 am if you are absolutely exhausted. 2) Talk to your professors. Professors are here because they want you to learn. If your struggling with a class there is no shame in arranging to meet with them. Even if you find the class easy, your professors work as great references for jobs. So communicate with them! 3) Get Involved, There is no shortage of clubs and activities to take part in. By getting involved you meet new friends, make connections, and grow as a person.
