    Get involved with a club, sport, and, if you must, a fraternity or a sorority. If you do not get involved, college will suck. Don't be afraid to talk. Know what you want! The advisors for freshmen and sophomores tend to be clueless. They just want to put you on a track and move you through the system, so it would serve you to have a plan of what you want to take and what you want to include in your education.

They should also go on to the University's website and look at all the programs and activities offered. Students should also contact the school if they have any questions, the staff replies in good timing.

    For prospective students, prepare to get to campus at least half an hour before class to find parking. Most importantly, try to get involved and join clubs to make your college experience better.
