    Always plan ahead! Spaces for classes are very competitive here, so make sure you sign up for the earliest freshman orientation possible, or do whatever you can to get advanced registration for every semester. Immediately search for the Facebook group of your graduating class - many questions are answered there by your peers and upperclassmen. Over the summer, look for any programs offered by your college because that is exactly how you get a head start on your social life in college!

    The best advice I can give is to familiarize yourself with the school...and this goes for whatever school you decide to go to. If you already have a major in mind, make sure that the school(s) your interested in have that specific major. Also take time to visit the campuses you are interested in and see if you can picture yourself not only getting an education there but starting your future. Another thing I can say is when you do decide which school you want to go to, make sure to stay up to date with the things you need to do in order to go there. PLAN AHEAD. Keeping track of dates are very important when it comes to college, and doing so will help you stay ahead of things.

    Find your place, but don't get stuck there. What I mean by that is this- there is a place for everyone at SJSU and current students, clubs, and staff do a great job of making you feel welcome. There is an array of student clubs to get involved in, meeting every interest from badminton to ceramics to economics. However, once you find your niche, don't be afraid to step out and meet new people. Don't underestimate what you can learn from others who have different interests and gain from experiencing things that are unfamiliar to you.
