How difficult are the homework assignments, tests, and finals? Is it hard getting to school early in the morning (7 AM)? Is it less or more stressful than high school? What are relationships like (between friends, significant others)? Have you met anyone that you've felt completely changed your life or had quite an impact on you and your life? Where did you get your textbooks? What classes are you taking? Do they have awards for perfect attendance or honor roll or any gpa awards? What do you recommend doing in college? What do you recommend not doing? What advice would you given an incoming freshmen?

to be honest, my high school experience was more challenging than college in terms of liberal arts classes. the sciences/math in college and the associated workload was greater in college. it definitely impacted my life for the good and bad. i met some bad people, i met some good people... met my best friend, which was awesome. i usually bought my books from amazon or the bookstore.
there are gpa awards. if you maintain a certain gpa while taking a certain amount of classes, you can be placed on the Dean's list, which is nice. if you maintain a certain gpa OVERALL, you may be eligible for the cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude designations. certain gpas can earn you entry into honor societies like Golden Key or Phi Beta Kappa.
i recommend developing a good relationship with your advisor and really planning ahead. be smart. have an idea of what you want to do. use ratemyprofessor. com to avoid crazy professors. be safe, don't go anywhere without friends. don't drink from cups that are handed to you, always get your own cup. avoid the party life, because honestly, you're there to learn, not to get trashed.
overall, i had a positive experience.1
