    Make friends with people that are in the same classes as you and the same major. This will help you when it comes time for test and other assignments because you can form study groups. Always participate in the student life coalition activities and the Student Union Board activities like Spring Fling Week and Homecoming Week because there are a lot of fun activities and a ton of free McNeese gear that they pass out. Check before signing up for classes because it really helps you. Turn your work in on time! Go to your professor's office hours if you are having trouble in a class.
