10 THINGS EVERY STEVENS FRESHMAN SHOULD KNOW*

1. Always go to class, even if attendance is not mandatory. Often professors cover material that is not in the textbook & part of the grade may be based on class participation.

2. Use some type of an organizer like Google Calendar to keep track of your schedule and plan when you will study each week.

3. All professors and TA's have office hours. When in doubt about a class, ask for help, don't be shy!

4. Use all that the library has to offer: walk-in tutoring, help with research, quiet study space.

5. Work hard freshman year and do well in intro level courses.

6. Your peer mentor, advisors, facutly, undergrad academic deans and upperclassmen are all here to help. Don't be afraid to email or visit them.

7. Get involved in clubs, they are a great way to meet people.

8. Most classes have exam archives, make sure you use them!

9. Tutoring is FREE - take advantage of one-on-one tutoring and the Walk-In Tutoring Center in the library.

10. Study hard. You might not have in high school, but that won't work at Stevens!
