It's okay to wait to get involved; it's important to give yourself time to adjust to college.

The friends you have freshmen year may not be the same friends you have when you graduate, or even when you become a sophomore, and that's totally okay!

Coming into college can be extremely intimidating, but just know everyone is in the same situation as you. Recognize that you are not alone and make the most out of your college experience, take every opportunity.

I would advise first-year students to step out of their comfort zone. That is one of the best ways to get involved on campus and to find their group(s) of friends. It also allows them to network with employers, faculty, and other students that could benefit them in their search for internships/jobs and their future careers. It can be very uncomfortable and stressful at first, especially with our diverse University community, but they can learn a lot from people who are from different backgrounds, have different experiences, and identify differently than themselves and the people they have been surrounded by for the first 17/18/19 years of their life.
The department is currently hiring new Orientation Leaders; check back for updates.
