It’s of the utmost importance that you try to make the most of freshman year!

You’re only a freshman once, and it should be an amazing experience!

But aside from having the time of your life, there’s some business you must attend to if you want to make the most of freshman year.

1. Attend Homecoming

You can’t miss your first high school dance, can you?

Well, you can, but odds are that down the road, you’ll regret it!

The first step toward making the most of freshman year is getting involved with all the classic high school things, beginning with Homecoming Dance.

2. Talk to Strangers

You will probably encounter plenty of strangers during freshman year.

But don't automatically ignore them just because you don't know them, or because they dress/look different than your old friends.

You never know who is going to be your best friend!

So interact with lots of people you haven't met before and keep an open mind.

3. Learn Study Strategies

You'll be in high school for the next four years, and it isn't going to get any easier!2

Freshman year is the perfect time for you to learn valuable study strategies that will help you throughout the years.

Find out the best study methods for you and stick with them in order to be successful.

4. Join Clubs

Hopefully, your new school offers a host of clubs that will take your high school experience to the next level!2

Join as many clubs as you can your freshman year;

if you drop out of them later, it’s okay.

Freshman year is all about trying new things and meeting new people.

What better place to do that than in an after school club?

5. Try New Things

Aside from clubs, there are a number of other new things you can try during your freshman year!

From new foods to new fashions to new classes, there are countless avenues you can take toward discovering who you are!

If you never try anything new, how will you grow and transform?

If there’s one thing you want to avoid in high school it’s getting labeled, and the key to doing so is remaining in a constant state of change.
