Be proactive and attend orientation to your chosen school when offered.
Many colleges have admitted student social media accounts. Join these! It’s a great way to meet people in your area or in other states that share your interests/major. You may even find your future roommate on one of these accounts!
Consider attending a summer class/program at your chosen school. Many colleges will offer a transition or introductory program to the university for college credit.
