    Get involved, there are tons of different organizations on campus to help you find your place. Even if you go and don't find your place, you are still a step closer to figuring it all out. Meet with your advisor and go to professor office hours. Everyone says to do this and no one does, but really just do it.

    Invest in a pair of good walking shoes, a winter coat, and a hat and gloves. Michigan winters are no joke. Figure out the bus schedule for the bus closest to you, it is a HUGE help getting to class. join at least one thing in your first semester, whether it is a club, sport, or other activity.

    As an out-of-state student I’ve never felt so comfortable. I’ve visited other universities and the atmosphere was nothing compared to Michigan State University. Although, your experience is based upon your decisions, meaning, if you’re just going to give half-hearted effort, you’re going to receive a half-hearted experience. I understand college is supposed to be exciting and fun, in which it should be, but always remind yourself of why you came here. Give 110\% and Michigan State University will give it right back to you. Your professors are more than willing to help you out, but take the step of introducing yourself to them, make them remember you, visit them during their office hours, ask questions! Socialize, get yourself involved, there are thousands of organizations at Michigan State University, can’t find one you like? Create one yourself! Attend the sporting events, the student section is phenomenal and makes the experience so memorable with the chants, cheers and of course shouting the school song. Take advantage of your dorm excercise rooms, staying active has shown to have effect on an individuals mood and GPA. As well as working on campus, who doesn’t like making money? Michigan State University has over hundreds of job positions to select from, all positions are flexible around your class schedule, they understand your education comes first. Michigan State University feels like home away from home, the campus is gorgeous, there’s so much to do, it’s safe, what else could you ask for?
