If you need directions, look them up in secret and save them to your phone. Or ask your RA before class.

11. Talking about SAT and AP test scores.

Doesn't matter anymore. Stop.

Probably because you bought all your textbooks full-price at the school bookstore. Which was truly silly, because you could’ve found Boundless online textbooks for much less cash.

8. Talking about last weekend's parties.

You know it’ll be there tomorrow, too, right? And the day after, and the day after...

3. Printing out Every. Single. Powerpoint. Slide.

Basically completely unnecessary.

Try not to make every single one of these mistakes this year – but don’t fret too much about making a few. You are a freshman, after all.
