Advice to incoming freshmen: Take your first semester kind of slow to get the feel of college life and then get involved in as many clubs, jobs, and/or volunteer activities as you can handle second semester. I believe being involved in so many things my freshman year has helped me meet new people, get to know my professors better, and overall enjoy being a college student.
