OK....Here is my 2 cents..

Plan ahead so you have time to do everything right and on time.

Enjoy your time there. Before you know it it will be over and the fun will end for sure!

I say just remember to have fun. COllege for me was just working 40+hrs and then going to school for 12+ units/semester. I worked too hard and when it was over I was just learning about all of the fun things I could have done.

you need to talk to this professor!

This guy has some great research on his hands. I found his name on a google video about biomass energy!

Have fun, don't be too serious, don't party too hard, and don't take the brown acid.

so how was your first week?

Way back when, I got involved with my school student chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers. Our school had a machine shop that was primarily at the disposal of the engineering dept (made anything/everything needed for graduate level experiments and projects); and the student SAE chapter had free reign of equipment/materials for designing projects.

I volunteered my time with the machine shop manager pushing a broom and fetching tools, and was later hired as an intern (student aid related work-study). I learned how to weld, run a lathe and mill, got lots of hands-on design experience and got to work on some very cool projects (school had a large graduate biomedical engineering presence - did lots of work with artificial limbs and such).

Usually the folks who run machine shops are either tinkerers or car nuts, so you might have some fun the next four years trying out new things with your car! It's worth a shot...

join the local college radio station: lots of fun. meet cool people. get on the guest list @ shows, meet bands, hear new music. get tons of chicks.


they got a running club? join that.

dont skip 1/2 of your calculus classes if you want to do well.


edit: ok, maybe not tons of chicks
