    Take advantage of all the university has to offer. I know for me getting involved with lacrosse, Alpha Omicron Pi, the Freshman Leadership Opportunity, and the REACH program helped me meet a lot of people and make new friends. Take advantage of the tutoring center! They are super helpful and I know that their help is why I am doing good in classes I would otherwise be failing.

    Essentials for being a student in chico are: -Umbrella -Blankets -Heater (It gets very very very icy cold) -Summer clothes and Winter clothes. ( shorts, shirts, sweaters, raincoats, etc) -Typical college student daily school attire: workout clothes, also don't forget your water bottle. (we have H2O refill stations throughout campus) -Add at least $20 in your WildCat card (your ID), you can add money in the second floor of the library, in front of the printing station. You just never know when you might have to buy something for class that can only be bought with the wildcat card. -Best studying places: 3rd floor library (4th & 2nd floor is where everyone can talk), BMU basement has a beautiful renovated study area. -**IMPORTANT** Visit the Zen Den on the 3rd floor of the library. You'll thank me later. two word, Massage Chairs.

    One tip I would have is to come to an event called "Choose Chico". This happens twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, and this is where departments will give tours and answer any questions about the programs. I went to this event before I transferred and this solidify my choice to go to Chico State.
