Freshman Advice (3/3):

• Yes, that's just how Cedar Rapids smells.

• Don't drop acid. Take it pass/fail.

• The Dougie is still pretty big here. Teach yourself how to Dougie.

• "Waking-up early to study" really means "hitting the snooze button for two hours longer than you normally would." Lie to the rest of us all you want, but don't lie to yourself.

• Remember: only the most destructive parties are eligible for FEMA reconstruction grants.

• When looking for culture, remember that downtown Iowa City is a hotbed of Artists, both Sandwich and Pick-Up.

• The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in the red zone.

• According to the UI Student Handbook, anyone who successfully tackles Herky during the Homecoming Parade gets free tuition the following semester. Start practicing.

• Set practical, achievable goals for yourself. For instance: "I will take a nap in every building on East Side of campus this year."

• You don't need 50 coupon books.

• 45 is sufficient. 48 to be sure.

• Always remember that the leading cause of rape isn't drinking too much OR walking alone OR "being dressed that way." The leading cause of rape is rapists. So, in all seriousness, DON'T RAPE ANYONE. Thanks. Seriously.
