    Even if you know what you are majoring in, don't hold back on trying something completely different. Joining some clubs and orgs is an extremely effective way of making new friends who love doing the same things you do. Also, try not to take too long to join; if you find a club that you know you belong in, join early so that you maximize your time in the club. Lastly, EXPLORE the LA area, especially if you're new to the city. It is great to be able to use your newfound freedom to travel outside the school's red brick walls and find the best local food.
