1. You will make and end friendships, and that's OK.
2. You will regret sleeping through those lectures and not studying, and most importantly you will regret not trying to make a connection with your teachers.
Hey, you know what's actually not so bad? Your degree! I know, I was pretty surprised too when I finally opened a textbook! Kind of stating the obvious, but if you're paying a trolley-load of money for that education, maybe you should try actually tuning in for some of it? Another shocker — your professors are humans too! They do have lives beyond replying to your 'sorry my laptop fell in the bath so I need an extension on that essay' emails.
3. Don't be afraid to try new things — it's OK not to know what you want from life — use this time to figure it out.
4. Form opinions and don't be afraid of voicing them.
5. Go to lectures!
No, but seriously. Go. To. Lectures. And classes. And social events organised by the societies you've paid fees to be a member of. Even if they sound pants — you'll regret if you don't. (However missing one or two is OK — I'm not a monster)
6. If you're hurting, talk to someone.
7. Be nice to your parents.
8. Have fun, but start thinking about your future in your final year.
9. Love yourself.
10. Do NOT get high and fall asleep watching Snakes On A Plane in your neighbour's basement.
This is always pretty sound advice tbh. Always say 'yes' to adventures, unless they involve basements. Or Samuel L. Jackson films. Or drugs. Or all of the above, especially when combined.
11. DO enjoy a summer evening on the roof with all of your closest friends. Definitely don't get too drunk and start crying.
12. Try not to fall over so much.
Not sure if this is something avoidable, but hey it's worth a shot.
