Tomorrow night's "Girl Code" episode reveals everything you need to know about freshman year. In the meantime, here's one valuable piece of insight: Every semester, professors will tell you to purchase some absurdly expensive textbook that they swear you'll need to pass the class -- and you'll listen to them, because you're a good student and all.
