What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I knew more about how temperate the California climate usually is, but that Claremont can be very hot in the late summer and early fall. I wish I knew how important it would be to have a bike, skateboard or longboard to ride around on campus and how quickly I would adjust to living in a co-ed dorm suite, and be grateful for it, too.

It's good work though, you learn a TON and most of us feel that we are extremely well prepared compared to our peers in other schools.
