    Don't be afraid to get to know your professors. Not only could getting to know your professor lead to other opportunities such as a research or TA position, but most of the professors on campus come from really cool backgrounds and have a lot to share with the students that get to know them on a more personal level. Sit near the front of the classroom. In high school, this seemed like the a "nerdy" thing to do, but sitting near the front of a 500+ student lecture hall will help keep you focused on your professor and not on the people around you. Spend your free time exploring services catered toward students. There are so many cool events that happen on campus, so be sure to take advantage of them! Have fun with the friends you make. U of I and the Champaign-Urbana area have so much to offer outside of academics, so go exploring and be social with the friends you make in college.

    It is very hard to make close friendships without being involved in something on or off campus. There are also job postings on the job board that are good for students needing to earn some money. Also, I recommend studying abroad because nothing really changes over the four years and its worth experiencing something new.

    If you have a dorm meal card, look around to find the place with the best food. You can eat anywhere you like if you have the card. Also, the free bus pass is incredibly helpful for low-income students who don't have transportation- it's really excellent. Also, check into the psyche building's paid trials-- it's an easy way to earn a quick buck and all you usually have to do is sit and fill out paperwork.

    My course seems interesting so far and you'll meet great people here like anywhere. Faculty are pretty good but administrative staff can be tedious. Definitely worth considering, if anything about UIUC engages your curiosity!

    Honestly just come in with an open mind, you don't have to know exactly what you want to do yet. Just don't come in thinking it'll be a piece of cake in every class because it definitely isn't. Many hours need to be spent studying but there's definitely a good amount to have fun too, so a healthy balance.
