Tips for new college students

  • When you're in the dining hall, looking for a group of ineresting people to sit down with, pay attention to how full their trays are. It sucks to sit down with a group of people who finish eating three minutes later, and leave you sitting alone.
  • Did you remember to bring a phone? My college provides phone lines and voice mail, but says "Don't bring your own equipment." What they mean is "Don't bring your own answering machine." You'll still need a phone and phone line.
  • Speaking of phone lines, consider bringing an ethernet cable, a coaxial cable (for cable tv), and lots of power cords. These are things you might take for granted in a house.
