    Go out and play, and skip classes and procrastinate as much as you possibly can. :D
    Trust me, you won't get an opportunity to do this later on :clap:

    Drink excessive amounts of alcohol, which will lead you to vomit and bust a blood vessel or two in your eyes.

    I would say...
    Work very hard on getting the highest grades you can. That way if you have a bad semester later on the high GPA will help cushion the bad grades. If you piss away your freshmen year then you will spend the next 3 years trying to raise your GPA and that is the worst way to spend your undergraduate years.

    Grades are everything and don't believe anyone who says they aren't!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good luck,
    Amy

    Go to the movies a lot. I heard it's dirt cheap in Columbus for students ($3.50, but someone told me that like 4 years ago)...

    study hard, party alot harder. the best way to do this is to study like crazy from sunday night till thursday afternoon, then party from thursday night till sunday morning. its not as easy at it sounds but if you try to adhere to it you'll be fine.

    make sure u get good grades and most importantly good teachers. my student advisor screwed me over and i ended up taking chem 1 and 2 twice.

    if u have a question about anything, ask. the only stupid question is the one u dont ask. get involved in clubs. like leadership roles. volunteer.

    oh yea, dont take more than u can handle.

    and of course, have fun, but not too much :D
