    Stay on top of all the announcements and updates in your student account and email so you don't miss deadlines for things like housing, registration, etc. Family Weekend was great for the whole family. Even though you feel so safe here, don't let down your guard.

    Get to know your professors and do attend office hours, they have a job to do and that is to help you, and they love doing it! Don't limit yourself; go to all different types of clubs and activities even if you're a introvert like myself, you'll meet a lot more friends that way and you'll experience the university to the fullest that way. Be careful with your dining money, be frugal so that by the end of the semester, you'll have money to spare in case you need it. Opening P.O. boxes can be tricky, stick with it and make sure to pick up your mail regularly. Make sure to eat well, the food here is excellent and it can be hard to resist stuffing your face every meal.

Lastly, be involved find something that fits you because then you will be around people you that share the same values as you.
