    Prepare for Boston weather! Dress warmly, it gets really cold. Be open about what classes you take and dabble in things that interest you, even when outside your major. There are so many opportunities available, so make sure to start looking at programs you may be interested in well in advance, or time will slip away from you. Northeastern has a huge array of study abroad programs, including the 'Dialogue of Civiliations' programs which are travel programs led by faculty members during the summer for students to get hands on experience in a foreign country studying relevant material. And don't forget co-ops, which can be done internationally! Northeastern will help you travel all around the world if you take the opportunities given.

    Consider Northeastern if you want real-world experience. Don't come here if you're planning on just going to class and then going home. Come here if you want Co-Op, great classes, and want to get involved in student groups.

    Go to office hours and talk to professors if you have a problem. Go to any and all athletic or other on-campus concert or event because these are a great way to relax and show school spirit. Don't get too stressed about your work and make sure you are getting enough rest.

    -Think about/choose your classes ahead of time, and make 2 or 3 backup schedules in case your first choice doesn't work out -Make use of the gym, you'll never find one better -Use up all of your meal swipes at Outtakes as not to waste your parents' money/ have to run to the supermarket -Make sure you're not looking for the rah rah of a school with a football team, because there isn't one here/ NU lacks school spirit in a way -There seems to be an unspoken rule that everyone makes their freshman friends the first week of the year so put your best foot forward then, or you may end up lonely...this is when groups are formed
