Veteran tip for band camp/school: There’s no other group on campus where you can say “I made 200 friends on my first day.” It may actually take a while to meet all 200, but you’ll have at least one other person in your major who you can study with, find out who the good professors are, ask for help from. Definitely utilize them.
