Peer Adviser Post: TIPS FOR FIRST-YEARS

TIPS FOR FIRST-YEARS

1) Professors are friendly- office hours are a good thing.

2) No one expects you to figure everything out as soon as you get here.

3) It’s not a competition on who can sleep the least or stress out the most.

4) You’re not going to be a New Yorker in a day- it’s okay if you get off on the wrong subway stop.

5) Find your library- try different study spaces.

6) Student rush tickets and the TIC are good deals.
