Get In Where You Fit In - 5 Tips on Getting Oriented

Becoming well oriented on your new college campus can be difficult. You can make the undertaking much easier by keeping in mind these effective tips.

1. Everyone is New. Freshmen students are all new to the campus, that's why they're called Freshmen. Don't worry about needing to get directions to find your classes, or starting off with a select number of acquaintances. Over time you will become more comfortable with the campus layout and the people around you. Before you know it, you will be able to get to your classes in a short amount of time and you will have a strong network of good friends.

2. Get Organized ASAP. As soon as you can, register for your email and your identification card. Take a tour of the campus so that you can get your bearings. If possible, locate all of the rooms where your classes will be held as well as the library, health center and administrative offices.

3. Get Involved. Don't spend your days wrapped up in your residence hall bedding. Introduce yourself to lots of people and get to all of the campus events. Most colleges and universities have a campus event office where you can find out about all of the upcoming activities. There are usually enough events and clubs to match the dispositions of any student. This will give you an opportunity to meet more people, develop social networks, and get comfortable with the campus layout.

4. Get Help. When you find yourself in a situation where you are uncomfortable, get help. Speak to your roommate, your dorm supervisor, your faculty adviser or your professors. You can solve any problem so long as you use all of your resources.

5. Get Working. The best way of staying positive is getting positive results. Get to class, read the notes, study the content and complete the assignments. In no time at all, you will be earning grades you want and you will feel much better about your new situation.Oriented
