    Explore the academic wing. Most people stick to the buildings that encase their majors. I go all over!

    Try and do as much as you can. I regret not doing MORE my freshman and sophomore year. As a junior, I'm running out of time... Go to concerts, go to parties (you only have to go to one, if you want), meet with your professors, try every station at all the dining halls, hang out with people you're only class friends with, do something outside of your comfort zone. Have fun, but work hard. Take classes you're interested in, just because you want to! Everything can be fun at school if you let it.

    Football is the biggie during fall. Tickets to games can be won for free through a lottery system, so don't miss your chance. The gym is free and has basketball courts, ping-pong and pool tables, and a swimming pool. There's also Breakzone which has a bowling alley and video games. You can always see the intramurals going on in the Drillfield--from flag football to Quidditch to slacklining.
