    If you are not a person who would feel like partying is a regular necessity, the social scene might be something you definitely need to get used to. Actually talk to your professors and read the chapters before class if that is something you can do. Utilize the gym!!

    GET INVOLVED. I know that everyone always says that to new students, but I cannot express enough how important it is to be involved in some sort of club or organization on campus. Not only does it help you make friends, but it boosts your resume and if it is in a field for your major, it can help prepare you for a career in that field and connect you to countless internship and job opportunities in the future!

    I am an incoming freshman, and I will be attending in Fall 2015. I have some friends that go here, and they say that you should be very careful with the party scene here on campus. There are a lot of parties that you can go to, but always make sure to be careful!
