If anyone has any tips or funny stories about their years in school I would love to hear them.

rkt4829 has the ticket - get a group of fellow Civ E's to study with and stick with them through higher level classes - to the point of maybe even trying to schedule things together if your dept doesn't already do that. My big mistake in college was getting involved with way too many campus groups. I don't regret it - actually I am glad I did, but it really isn't the greatest of ideas if you're looking to focus yourself and excel greatly.

Funny stories... well there is the rumor that circulates around Iowa State regularly, that the MIT engineering seniors always take something apart and reassemble it on top of the school's water tower as the "senior prank" and that one year it was a VW Beedle. And once they get it reassembled, it has to work, of course. :) (After all, what is the use of taking something apart if it doesn't work when you get it back together?)

Yeay! Another Lady Engineer!! :-) Welcome to the board!
