You won't regret it!-Use the free tutoring UTT provides. Struggling or not, there's no shame in getting free help.-University Pines is optional! You are auto-assigned there, but if cost is your priority I suggest switching to Liberty Landing. (Apartments with lower numbers are ideal - they've been renovated, and...-USE YOUR DINING DOLLARS! They do not carry over to the next semester, nor do any meal passes you do not use. So be sure to spend them all.-Finally, try to rent supplies and textbooks rather than buying them - and be sure you're getting a fair price.I hope this review was helpful!.
