The smell of Fall is in the air, and also you see the wide eyed look of Freshman descending across College Campuses all over the country. For some it is an exciting time of year to meet new friends and new adventures, but for some this is a very intimidating time.

I guess looking back it was a combination of both for me, but I eased into the college life pretty quickly, helped by upper class men and meeting awesome friends right off the bat. Even though school has technically started these tips will come in handy all year long:

* Ask good questions. You’ll meet new people every hour of every day for your first week. Try to learn more about the people you’re introduced to before you start talking about yourself. Demonstrate your interest in what they’re saying, doing and where they’re from.

* Explore on and off campus. Make sure you know how to get back to your dorm from anywhere on campus. Test your sense of direction and be certain you know how long it takes to get to different buildings so you are not late for classes, labs or meetings.

* Set up a budget. Students will earn the respect of parents and friends if they can live within a reasonable budget.
