    Don't apply for a major unless you are certain you want to pursue that indefinitely. This will save loads of time and money. Don't feel bad about going in undecided, as you might discover you are passionate about something completely different than you thought.

    For prospective students, may sure you like a big college with a lot of people. You have so many opportunities with extracurricular activities and I think it would be easy to connect with a lot of people there. After a tour and learning about the school, class sizes really are not all that big, so do not be scared of thinking you will not be connected with your professor. It is an amazing campus and offers endless opportunities.

    Be sure to research your degree path thoroughly, make sure it has a certificate (if needed for a job) and the core classes you will be taking are on par with what you are seeking in a college. Look at OSU's campus activities, chances are you will find one you like. Lastly and most importantly, make sure you can handle your weakest subjects being taught in an auditorium where you are one of 700 students in just that section. It can be tricky for classes like calculus, chemistry, physics, and biology. It is difficult to get clarification on small questions like you can in high school.

    Make sure you visit first. Although I love living here and the campus, my first time visiting was for orientation. It's best to be at least a little familiar with the campus, because it is big.

    1) When choosing OSU, be sure to research your options for housing your freshman year. 2) Pay close attention to what meal plan you are selecting and make sure that it fits your needs. 3) When it comes time to buy football tickets, they are well worth your money. Game days in the fall are always when I feel the closest to my thousands of peers. 4) Don't get too overwhelmed with the size of the campus. It seems big the first month, but once you get used to it, you realize that its large size just allows room for more activities. 5) Take advantage of all of the free activities provided by the university. Every day on campus there is some sort of activity going on, just ask around and stay in the loop. 6) Get involved and use all of the facilities. There are thousands of clubs at OSU and hundreds of buildings that you can access, such as the libraries and gyms.
