    Get ready to experience different cultures and opinions. there are going to be a lot of people who will think differently from you but respect what they have to say. Don't be afraid to speak up and be opinionated. Try out different clubs and organizations before you decide against them.

    I suggest that you make time during the day to do homework and study and if you plan accordingly then there is plenty of time to hang out with friends and try new things.

    1. If you are an out of state student, it is not worth going to the school if you don't receive any scholarships, or are placed into their best programs. For example, their art school is extremely good and definitely worth attending as an out of state student. 2. As a freshman, definitely start out on their freshman dorms, almost ~80% (my own rough estimate) of the students there make their first set of close friends in the freshman dorms. I went into an upperclassmen dorm and it is a lot harder to meet new people, especially if you are shy like me because people really keep to themselves more. In freshman dorms there is usually a sense of community and people visit around from room to room.

    I would say plan on doing a lot of walking, bike riding, or skate boarding. If you ride a bike, I would highly suggest exposing yourself to urban riding prior to your first day. All the traffic can be a little intimidating if you are used to trails and sidewalks.
