What advice would you give to students starting out at the University of Adelaide?

To learn from my mistakes and join a club sooner. Especially if you are from a rural town, coming to the city can be daunting and being a part of a club makes your university experience so much smoother as you meet people with similar interests and you have a more inclusive experience.
