13. DO leave campus once in a while 

Your university pretends to be a happy little universe that you never have to leave, but it's also a gilded cage, keeping you separated by convenience from the rest of the world. Though most people will tell you differently, you don't need to have a car to get around Atlanta. Check the MARTA lines and you’ll find that they can take you everywhere from the High Museum in the heart of Midtown to bars in Decatur. Riding on Atlanta's main thoroughfares on a bike can be a drag, but the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition has some smart maps that help you avoid the trouble spots while you pedal across town. And if you or one of your friends happens to have a car, pile everyone you know into it and actually GO somewhere, like swimming in the Chattahoochee or hiking in North Georgia.
