    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.

    Motivate yourself. No matter how smart you are, if you find yourself with no will to learn the subject, you will fail. So do something you like or find a way to enjoy what you don't.

    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.
