Tips from Students

"Get involved! You will make great friends and a lifetime of memories if you jump into the UNI culture and experience all of the wonderful activities, clubs and events it has to offer."

"Don't be afraid to fail, because trying something and coming up short is better than not trying at all."

"The most important thing to enter college with is an open mind. Talk to people outside of your major. Go to something you wouldn't normally go to. You might run into your new best friend (even if you don't realize it at first). After all, Mike Wazowski and Sulley didn't become best friends overnight!"

"Get involved!! Try a whole mess of new things you've always wanted to do and search for new things you didn't know we had! You'll make great friends and awesome memories! UNI has it all!!"

"Every opportunity counts! Get to know the people around you, in every setting, every day. These same people will be some of the most influential people throughout your college experience."

"I would tell all incoming students to not dwell on the past. It's good to reminisce about high school, but if you're always stuck in the past, you can't move forward. College goes by so incredibly fast, and you'll want to make as many new memories as you can in your time here. Don't be afraid to try new things and be open minded. Also, get out of your comfort zone. Talk with people who are different than you; perhaps you'll make some lasting friendships. Good luck!"

"Go to a lot of various campus activities and clubs and don’t be afraid to introduce yourself to people and start up conversations. That’s the best way to meet new friends."

"Don’t be afraid to talk to someone. Whether you need help finding a building on campus, want to make some new friends, or simply need advice on what classes you should take next, never be afraid of asking somebody!"

"Sit in the front of class! Network! Always be aware that a faculty member, staff member, peer student, anyone can hand you an opportunity at any moment. Keep your dorm room door open and make friends with the custodians! Leave high school in high school, college is a fresh start even if people from your high school are on campus. Get involved! Your involvement and experiences will give you the best memories and provide great examples to mention during interviews!"
