Do you have any words of wisdom or things you wish you'd known as an incoming UHM student?
Find ALL the free opportunities, food, and items you can get on campus. And take advantage of all the times you can win something at an event, contest, or survey because you may most likely win it!

Do you have any words of wisdom you'd like to share with the parents and family members of incoming UHM students?
Every first year student will get caught up with how busy the college lifestyle will get. The more involved they become, the less time they will have to relax and have a fun nights out. Don't feel bad if they don't skype or call you as much. Their first year of college is the most exciting!
