Best of list
The Lakeside Parlors. It's quiet down there, and I don't have to leave my residence hall. I can just grab my books and go. When I'm in my room, it's too easy to take study breaks. It's a little secluded at the lake, so I don't get distracted.
Running around campus and the Swamp Rabbit Trail.
It's a very active community. There's always something to do whether it's going downtown for dinner, visiting the farmer's market, running a 5K, or attending a concert.
Learning that the humidity in Greenville will make your hair crazy regardless of how much time you spend making it straight.
Smoke on the Water. They have a pretty large menu so there's always something that sounds good.
Political Economy of the Mass Media: It combined my interests in economics and politics within a communication class.
Homecoming. One of my favorite traditions is when we burn a stuffed animal representing the other school's mascot in front of the library.
The salad bar in the Pala Den.
Don't declare right away. Take classes that sound interesting and talk with your professors to learn what you're truly passionate about.
Be deliberate about where you study. If you know you get distracted with your friends, don't study with your friends. If the library is too social, don't go to the library. You'll save so much time that way.
Go to the clubs fair and sign up for everything that sounds interesting. After you go to the first meetings, you'll start to figure out which clubs you actually want to stick with.
Leave your door open when you're in your residence hall. People will peek their heads inside and it leads to some really fun conversations.
Get plugged in with your neighbors, especially on your freshman hall.
