    Get. Involved. There are a ton of things to do if you look. You may not be an extrovert but it will be very difficult to find an unfriendly bunch of people on this campus. Everyone is usually very supportive and understanding. You've just got to take the initiative. University is as much about forwarding your education as it is about making connections (that will follow you into the workplace).

    Be prepared to make friends with different backgrounds. Arrive early if you commute. Don't be afraid to ask professors if they have any volunteer positions open for their research. Use RateMyProfessors.

I really feel that the faculty and staff care about their students' needs and concerns.
