1.This holiday season, avoid talking politics with your ideologically different family members. Unless you enjoy being a part of irrational and heated arguments that lead to bad vibes and dirty looks at the dinner table.

2.Prepare for your final exams by going out with friends and eating lots of junk food. It will make you feel so much happier once you look at the exam reviews and realize that you have not been paying attention the entire semester.

3.Be realistic, seniors. Do not quit your current place of employment right after graduation because you think that your new degree is going to automatically land you a position at your dream job.

4.Freshmen, if you plan on moving to any of the student housing apartments off campus, know that if you ask for a clean roommate, you’ll get a messy roommate. And if you ask for a messy roommate, you’ll definitely get a messy roommate.
