    --I love that it is a big school because it is not like high school where everyone knows everyone. However, because it is a big school, you have to have some more initiative to get things done and get to know people. Otherwise, you will be invisible to your professors and other students. --Get to know your professors: Go to office hours. Talk to them before or after class. Maybe even sign up for a workshop they are teaching. Trust me, it goes a long way to get to know them. They can offer letters of recommendation or tell you about research and other enrichment opportunities. --Get involved: Join a club or do some volunteering, especially if you want to make the school seem a little smaller. Joining a club will make it easier to get to know people, and it looks good if you are planning to go beyond a bachelor's degree. --Get to know and use the resources: Because UofH is big, it has so many resources. No one knows ALL of them, but there is tutoring, workshops, career development, advising for pre-professionals, and much much more. Seek out what you need; UofH probably has it.

    Learn your way around campus for it is a big university after all. Join a few of the several clubs offered at UH, and take advantage of your teachers, for they are truly there to help you.
