Lessons learned the past two semesters:
1. There's a lot to be said about someone who can survive the academic environment at BYU. I found that BYU's classes are much more difficult and challenging and requires more academic excellence than my previous university did.
2. Snowdrifts are not as innocent as they look. BYU's ground crew will kindly shovel you out when you're stranded in the Marriot's parking lot. :)
3. Never take empty parking spaces for granted.
4. "Deal with it." (a phrase from one of my professors) means to not fall apart (especially during finals week). I found I can "deal with it" very well.
