Freshman year of college can be a pretty overwhelming experience for the first few weeks. From dorm meetings with your RA to learning how to navigate the campus, here’s some advice from Huffington Post College to help you get through your freshman year, specifically your first semester.
1. Be open to meeting all different types of people!
You’re going to find yourself in one huge sea full of different religions, political views, lifestyles, beliefs and races. They’re all there for the same reasons you are. You might even meet your new BFFL.
2. Consider getting involved in extracurricular activities.
It’s the quickest way to make friends. Find others who share your interests, and keep you socially active. It can also result in potential networking with alumni.
