Freshman year was great, but if you don't seek what you need to graduate you will be lost. Once you do however, you are met with a lot of help. Many say to get involved with extracurriculars, and that is true, but make sure you do it because you are genuinely interested in that activity. Sophomore was a lot harder because I had no close friends nearby and it was very hard to make them.

Somehow in a place where the student body is so diverse, you always feel at home.
