Congrats to all the newbies. As a recent graduate, I remember the excitement of those first days. Let me offer a few tips - you can get some textbooks at a considerable discount from Half.com if you are lucky and order as early as possible. I also got 10% off from Barnes and Noble online as well as occasional coupons for an additional 10% off. Their annual fee paid for itself in 1 quarter. School bookstores were always more expensive. Get some kind of planner for assignments - I used Student 4.0 on my Palm, which let me key in all assignments, projects, readings, and keep track of my grades in every class. Lots more, but enough for now. Good luck to all.
