CSE quick facts
What advice would you give to a new student?
"Use every resource available to you but don’t feel tied to any of them. Go to class (and do the work, including the readings), go to TA hours and work with your classmates whenever you can. There are also many types of advising (course, career, engineering, pre-health, etc), clubs, and more. After you’ve given everything a fair try, drop it if it doesn’t work for you or fit your goals. Not every form of learning works for everyone. Also, start assignments early, especially labs!"
