    Get involved! After attending the ATP Freshmen Orientation there in late March, I realized there are so many activities, especially in the realm of intermural sports. Even if you're not on a varsity team of some kind, you can still get involved in the sport or program you love by starting a club or joining one that already exists.

    If you are an incoming freshman student, get involved! College is what you make it. Therefore, do not be scared to join clubs, go to games, rush a fraternity or sorority, and to make friends! Also, go to class and do your homework. First and foremost you are in college to get an education.

    If there is a community college in your area, do your general education there but make sure the credits can transfer, and if possible to do dual credits in high school.
