Freshman orientation programs can differ depending on the college you attend. Some schools offer a brief crash course on what to expect when you're living on campus, while others may invite you to stay longer before the official start of the school year. It's also worth noting that some colleges may be holding their orientation programs virtually or using a combination of in-person and virtual events. Whatever the case, taking advantage of these programs to help make your transition to college life as smooth as possible.

Clubs, groups, events, concerts, etc.

*Register early - 

I suggest signing up for the earliest orientation date possible. Why? You'll choose your classes, and they fill up fast! You'll want to ensure you get the courses you need at the time you want! 

Just a heads up: some schools have started charging a convenience fee for online courses. If you register late and online classes are the only option, you could shell out thousands more.
