Advice for First-time Freshmen

Take the time to meet your professors. At the beginning of each semester, visit them during the office hours, introduce yourself, let them know what class you have with them and tell them how excited you are to learn from them. Your professors will take the time to invest in your success if you take the time to invest in their class.
