    There is an enormous amount of different activities you can get involved with at OSU. One of the most important pieces of advice I can think of is don't get involved with too much or try to do too much. You'll end up having too many things going on at once and it might be overwhelming for you. Also, and this goes for all colleges, make sure to be yourself in college. I've met plenty of kids who are pretending to be someone else and I don't know why, they aren't making friends with people that know them for them, but people that know them for the person they are pretending to be.

    Make sure to be a part of an organization or have great networking. That is a big key to success at this university. Also enjoy the atmosphere around you.

    Don't let the sheer size of campus or your initial classes intimidate you, you will learn everything a lot faster than you think. That being said, don't get caught up in too many of the endless weekend activities or your grades will most definitely suffer. If you want to enjoy your living accommodations, get a few friends together and rent an apartment, they're really nice but pricey. Take advantage of the numerous study halls and libraries around campus, you'll always get more done in a conductive learning environment. Most of all, just be yourself, you'll find friends who share your interests and they'll be able to help you throughout your life at OSU

    Definitely do the following: take a campus tour, take a dorm tour, visit the stadium and athletic facilities, walk across the oval on a nice day, and sit in on a class if possible.

    Definitely be prepared for how big it is. But after a couple weeks it will feel much smaller as you get to know people and the university.
