    If you are undecided in what you want to major in, don't stress about it too much. MCAD doesn't have you declare your major until you have completed three semesters there. There are plenty of classes to take for you to explore what you're interested in!

    Know what field you want to pursue and research it. Contact people who are already employed doing what you want to. Contact the alumni department for suggestions.

    Get your homework done as soon as you get it. Don't wait around and do it later, because your other classes will also assign huge projects and you won't be able to get them all done Sunday night. Just do them at the first opportunity, otherwise you'll be swamped.

    Don't be too nervous. Sure it's basically a new school and you don't know anyone. But just be yourself and you'll find friends who you can get along with and who share your interests. Believe me, once you pick your major you'll have plenty of people to talk to and interact with. As long as you're not a jerk.
