    Do not feel like you have to pick a major right away! Take some classes and see what you have an interest in and what you don't. Either way is totally acceptable! You have plenty of time to figure it out. Take advantage of all that campus has to offer too; there is always someone to help in whatever way they can!

    Don't think you have to choose your major right off the bat. Give yourself a semester or two to dip your toes in the water and find what is best for you. Join clubs or groups that have to do with your major, that way you will find people who share the same interests as you do and it will create a smaller community among the larger university. Try to find a job or internship in your field, it'll help you so much along the way when you start applying for jobs or future schools.
