My advice to incoming freshman...   
   
1. Wear a condom. Now you can't depend on the rumor mill to figure out who's clean and who isn't.   
2. If you're in the dorms, and you smoke weed, DON'T TAKE THE RISK. You'll feel constantly sketched, and who knows who's a rat and what not.   
3. Stock up on food. You're going to get hungry, a lot. Unless you're connected to a cafeteria you're going to have lazy days.   
4. No one fucking cares what you wear. Sweatpants will be your best friend.   
5. Study. Fucking study. Study your ass off. I breezed past high school thinking I could do the same in college. Long story short: I was wrong. Develop your study habits quick or else it'll come back to bite you in the ass. Hard.   
6. Professors couldn't care less about you. Unless it's a classroom setting, i.e. 15-30 students, you'll just be a name to the professor. Introduce yourself in the first class period. Be friendly. Just say "Hi, I'm Derp Derpson and I'm really looking forward to this class." Easy as that. You'll get on their good side, they might call on you in class, and if you impress them, they just might curve your grade a little bit more.    
7. Go to class. Yes, you can hit snooze on the alarm clock and no one will shake you violently to get you going. Also, it's a hit or miss on whether or not there's an attendance policy. But surprisingly, you learn shit when you go to class. Shit that ends up helping you on the exams/papers. Oh yeah, and there's hardly extra credit.   
8. Get a job. Somewhere, anywhere. Unless you're fortunate enough to have parents that can supply you with a no-limits credit card, you're going to be broke. Have some spending, or better yet, saving money. Time to think about the future, eh?   
9. If there's free stuff being handed out, take as much as possible.   
10. Get involved with something. Assuming you stay on/near campus. You're going to want to do shit on the weekends. Join organizations, go to sporting events, etc. Make sure you still have time to study, though.   
Done
