>Don't slack off in class.
>Take notes, you're fucked without them when exams roll around.
>There's drugs everywhere, just ask around.
>Find a hobby/club or you'll be bored to death in the dorms.
>Cheap food is your friend.
>Take vitamins, you'll need them.
>Women at college are in their sexual prime, take advantage of that opportunity.
>Give your room a full cleaning at least once a week (sweep, mop, wash everything), otherwise sickness will be a constant companion.
>Stock up on basic medicine, the new environment + shittons of people means you'll probably get a few bugs here and there.
>Stock up on food for your dorm, nothing sucks more than being starved at midnight on a Wednesday with no place to eat or buy food.

Don't spend all your money on drink and drugs so you have to go 3 days without eating!

Speaking of cash, always keep an emergency/backup fund, 50-100$ should do. If you need to spend it, replace it as soon as possible.

I don't know if colleges in the U.S have dress up parties, but when they roll around, go all out. Dress up as much as possible. You'll have many more conversations with people you normally wouldn't meet.

If you're going to leave an assignment till the last minute, get yourself into the mind set of "Three Days". I've done 2000 word essays 12 hours before they were due. I hadn't even read the opening question on some of them. If I had of thought that three days was 'last minute', I would've been much less stressed.

Single women - sexual prime.

Go to the house parties. Even if you have no one to go with, turn up anyway.

Get good at beer pong.

Yup, definitely take notes. Even if you end up almost quoting the lecturer, be writing all the time. Oh and make headings!

Review your notes at lunch or even when walking to your next class.

Have one person who is your best friend. Having that one person you're really open with helps so much when you're hating everything about college.

Always have a packet of rice and a bottle of sweet chilli sauce. You will get poor and you will get hungry.

Dark chocolate, dried fruit and walnuts are the absolute best study foods.

Use up as much free internet downloading movies and shows as possible. Buy a hard drive. I still use mine and it's so fucking great.

Always have printing credit. Always.

Go to class as often as you can. Loads of people think that because it's easy laid back 1st year you don't have to bother showing up for half of it. I thought that and it completely fucked me over.


Fags and coffee are your new best friend.
