    Meet with your counselor before signing up for classes and even during the semester. Don't wait until right before to register for classes.

    Attend the orientation sessions--they're a great help. Also, make friends with your adviser and never feel shy to call professors when you need help.

    Definitely look at your options. If you know what you majoring in, than look at what schools over the best program for that major. If you don't know what you want to major in, go to a community college. It will save you a lot of money! Once classes start, there are many resources that you can turn to if you need help. We have a tutoring center, supplemental instructions, office hours, and a 24 hour library. Also, use when planning your classes. It will be your lifesaver!

Nonetheless, you can still make friends you just have to make the first move.
