Enjoy, and I hope these tips will help you get through freshman year!

6. Try to bring ice breakers

If you have some movies in the room, they can really break the ice. Maybe some guys would not miss the chance to play football on the computer, especially if you have a few beers taken out. In the first month of my student life, I brought a TV in the kitchen and thrown a small party.

7. Go to as many events as possible

This can be done in two ways. First of all, your specialization involves a series of events to find out exactly what is involved, who the teachers are, what they are used for. It is a good pretext to get to know the people involved and so you will remove the doubts and questions you have in mind. Instead, the student union will have many events you can attend, such as visiting clubs, evenings with different topics, questionnaires. Again, these are all good ways to become known.

8. Find out more about the location

Students’ week is a good opportunity to learn more about the campus and about what surrounds the city. Thus, you will not panic when you are late on a course and do not find the room. If you walk around the city, you will discover doctors, dentists, hospital, taxi station, new stores. The college should have different maps and additional information to help you. Again, it’s a good way to get rid of doubts and worries about places.

9. Join clubs and teams

There will be many clubs and sports teams who will be interested in attracting new members during the first year of the students. This can be a good way to meet new people with the same interests as people who have once been students and who can bring you extra information. Sports teams are generally pretty good because they keep you healthy and active. The more you gather more friends, the better. The most well-known young people during the period of study were those who offered various services to the union of students and who were members of clubs.
