    Be prepared to be among thousands of students because sometimes that can be very overwhelming. GET INVOLVED! Being apart of campus organizations and clubs are what allowed me to connect with more students and to make a stronger impact as a student to the university.

    Apply as soon as you can! It helps with housing preferences, and you will get your acceptance/rejection letter earlier than those who wait. Applying early also gives you a chance to apply for academic scholarships. Once you get here, don't be afraid to go to mixers before classes officially. Don't be afraid to introduce yourself to new people! Try to study for your classes, or else you'll be up late and you could potentially get a lower grade than you wanted on an exam. Many teachers offer office hours for help. Take them up on their offer, if you need to. Overall, try not to keep yourself cooped up in your room for too long. It's okay to be a little adventurous and explore campus a little bit!

    Do not underestimate this southern school. Mississippi State is not a school you think of right off of the top your head when you are thinking of colleges, but its charm is undeniable. They are not number one in football or have the best overall grades in the country, but they have so many opportunities for their students. If you are a hard working individual you will be rewarded for it. Do not take this school out of the mix when selecting colleges merely because it's not the most well known.

    Be friendly with people who live in the same dorm hall as you. Participate in activities and study groups. Find a club to join, there are so many here and they all love new members. DO NOT BE AFRAID TO ASK QUESTIONS.
