    Register for housing early. If not you wont find a good place to live or quality roommates. Check out all of the on campus places to eat. Some areas have better discounts than others. Plan your travel home months in advance. Flights & ground transportation fill up fast. Use the Learning and Resource Center as often as possible. It is free and the tutors there are awesome!

    Getting involved in clubs and fun events on campus will really help you find new friends. There are mNy ways you can get help with your classes with tutors, library and study groups! I would suggest going to the sporting events they are really fun!

    Texas Tech for me was a surprisingly great school. Not knowing much about the city at all, my decision was based on what I had heard or researched, which was not a significant amount. However, the dorms are very easy to get used to, the classes (so far) are personal. The campus and city is beautiful. And if you put yourself out there, you will find people who will accept you and eventually become very good friends.

    ~Do whatever you can to get a good/decent roommate for your first semester. Especially if you are in the traditional dorms, having a bad roommate can make life hard in so many ways. There are options to switch roommates, and it never hurts to ask your CA/RA what your options are. ~Just because this is your freshman year doesn't mean that you can slack off. It's kind of like high school in that respect- your GPA is cumulative throughout all four (or however many it takes you!) years, and having a crappy GPA freshman year can be really hard to recover from. ESPECIALLY if you are in a competitive STEM field, such as engineering. ~Your professors are there to help you! GO TO THEIR OFFICE HOURS. Oftentimes they are able to give you much better one-on-one attention and explanations during office hours, when you are not one of 20-300 in a lecture hall. ~Find some place that you can go every once in a while for a home-cooked meal. Tech's food is decent, but after a while it feels like you've been eating nothing but junk food/fast food for weeks on end. Even if it is just a friend who has their own apartment and will let you cook something there, you'll definitely want that after a while. ~Get used to walking and/or biking a lot. Even if you are bringing a car, it is really not feasible to drive to all of your classes. Tech is a big campus (the largest in the U.S., actually!), and you'll need to figure out the most efficient routes to your classes.
