    Sign up for the campus tour. It was the most complete and informative tour of all of the colleges that I visited.

    Don't freak out. Your not the only freshman out of the 5,000 of you that is freaking out about life here. Everyone is bound to get a little nervous. But don't worry, there are people there to help, and making friends helps a lot too.

    Aside from being prepared for college, because you are going to have to do that anywhere, prepare for a pretty brutal winter. The campus and student body is absolutely huge, which may intimidate you or allow you to come out of your shell and meet new people. Thats true for any college, but I am not kidding when i say the campus is big, prepare to do a lot of walking!

    Don't be too intimidated about Tech's size! It is big, but trust me when I say it gets a lot smaller as you are a student here. Everything is actually relatively close, within 15 minutes walk roughly. It's a great daily exercise, and everyone loves walking around the beautiful campus. Also, there are really big classes but you can still get a good thorough understanding of the course with the recitation sessions taught student teachers in classrooms with 20 or less.
