We’re wrapping up Frosh Week, which means that as of today, it’s really back to school. But really, that’s the beginning of the biggest part of the best four years of our lives, right?

We asked upperclassmen what advice they’d give frosh, and they responded with answers from the heartfelt, to the hilarious, to… the kind of common sense? (yeah, they should do laundry? how did you not, person who said that they never used the res washers?)
