Welcome to college — what is sure to be one of the most educational experiences of your life. Let's start by letting you in on a little secret: They don't teach you everything in school. But worry not — once again, the Metro Times College Guide is here to teach you what you need to know to hit the ground running in your first semester.

This year, we've got priceless advice to help you get through it all. We've got tips on how to choose a fulfilling career, how not to get fucked over by student loans, how to navigate sexual consent, how to be thrifty, and the best spots on campus for when you've got the munchies. Trust us, it'll come in handy. Good luck out there.
