    I recommend getting involved on campus by joining Greek Life but first rush and see if you like it. There are always different ways to still get involved on campus! Getting out of your comfort zone will be a necessity if you wan't to get to know people but for the most part you will meet a lot of friends on your floor from the dorms.
