    -Since Pitt has endless things to do, it will be easy to overestimate your time and overbook yourself. Looking through the list and going to the activities fair, you will want to do everything. Commit to one or two clubs you really care about, and visit the rest whenever they have big events open to everyone. -Be open to meeting people different than what you're used to. Pitt isn't the most diverse school percentage-wise, but since it has over 15000 kids, it still adds up. -Take advantage of O-Week! Lots of schools don't offer anything like it, and it's a super easy way to learn about the school, make friends, and get a ton of free stuff, so go to as many events as you can. -Don't spend the next ~100 days wasting away in Oakland. Pittsburgh is a city known for it's diverse neighborhoods and the bus is free with your Pitt ID, so you should do something in all of them at least once (cultural district, south side, shadyside, squirrel hill, lawrenceville, east liberty, waterfront, north shore). -Take advantage of the internship/volunteering opportunities of living in a big city. Leadership in Action is a program that gives you experience working on a special project for a local nonprofit. First Experiences in Research is also a great program, and not just for STEM majors. They have projects for everything from bio to psych to history to art. -PITT ARTS!!! Their events are everything. They take you to a play or musical in the city plus get you dinner at a restaurant, for free. Sign up for their newsletters to get notified so you can sign up. -Watch your spending. Living in a city, it's easy to lose track of money you spend on random crap. My club's blog, pittpennysavers.blogspot.com , writes articles about how to save on Pitt's campus. -Study abroad. You can go almost anywhere! Obviously this is a bit down the line for freshman, but you can start looking into it today. They have a good website that details all the programs. There are lots of scholarships that can make it possible for almost anybody.

    Make sure to go to the teachers and the TA's office hours. If you are taking a math course, be sure to utilize the Math Assistance Center. Sit in the front of your lectures and build relationships with your teachers! Make sure to find a place where you can study without any distractions!

    Definitely visit Pitt. The urban setting of the campus may be a little intimidating but once you see the campus it is not so bad. Also Pittsburgh is an awesome place with so much culture to it.

    Anybody looking at the University of Pittsburgh should be willing to be a part of the Pitt family and part of the city of Pittsburgh, but don't be scared off by the size. It may be spread out, but trust me. It is not really as big as you think it is, so don't worry about getting lost. You get used to it fast.

    Don't let others intimidate you ! I expected this university to be much more diverse and at some times I feel like most of the student body looks the same. But don't be afraid to join organizations and talk to people.
