SUCCESS TIPS FOR FIRST-YEAR STUDENTS
Always ask for help if you need it. The worst thing you can possibly do is think you can just do it on your own and then you may end up not doing it right which is never a good thing. Another piece of advice is to always make sure you are on top of your deadlines because there is a lot of them and they can be very easy to forget at times. 


MUST EXPERIENCE 
Get out and get involved at UConn! Experience as many sports games and activities that you can so that you can get to know a lot of people and stay busy which can lead to an awesome experience.
