    Don't be shy! Go out and make friends. Parties, class, work, whatever! Don't stay in your dorm room. You will definitely have a better experience if you go out and make friends.

    Move closer to campus and take CUE bus, parking is expensive. Activate MasonAlert, it comes in very handy (especially in winter).

    Invest in a planner to write down homework on and a campus map. Plan your routes to class beforehand because you will get lost.

Make a habit of sleeping early and waking up early.
