Don't take any professor that you can't pronounce their name! Other than that, just stay on top of your studies and you should do fine. The professors are pretty understanding and easy to work with, for the most part. I liked that I was able to plan all my studies around work and other things that I needed to accomplish. All my classes were available when I needed them to be, which was a great help. You should try to get invoved in at least one organization. I will most definitely miss this place!
