Is there anything incoming students should do during the summer that will make the college transition smoother?

That is such a terrific question!! My main tip- try to get involved with the things that SMC offers enrolled students. What I would definitely do first is to become a member of the Class of 2015 facebook page if you haven't already. It's a great way to get in contact with many students in the class of 2015 and discuss everything from dorms, Burlington, and just how much you love SMC :) Knight Chats are also a great way to talk to SMC students have gone through this before and can give you tips for getting quickly adjusted to college life- we'll be having a couple throughout the summer, so I'll be sure to let everyone know the dates on my blog when I know them!! Second, I would recommend going to one of the 3 Class Registration Days/ Preorientation weekends in July. It's really the first contact you have with some professors, faculty, and students who will be going through the same thing as you come August 25th- plus, it's a great way to know familiar faces on move in day :) You'll receive a lot of information regarding things you need, signing up for programs etc. in your Student Guide which should be coming sometime in May (I still have mine on my nightstand here :)
Here are some of the links to all the great SMC things for the Class of 2015
