    I would avoid partying too much Freshman year. It might seem like fun, but parties at Purdue can get out of hand extremely quickly. Everything is at your fingertips, so it is important to think about the future and not just that moment. I would also advise to talk to strangers. The lectures can get huge, but if you know just one person that will sit next to you then it will help.
