Always remember that nothing is permanent. You can change your classes and intended major as much as you want until you find yourself studying what you are passionate about. Do not be intimidated or scared of your advisor. They are truly there to help you succeed. Things may seem extremely overwhelming and hopeless at first. Give yourself time to settle into a routine and realize that if you look around there are so many great people ready to help you with your ambitions. Homesickness is and unfortunate factor for most first year students. I was probably one of the worst, and I can tell you that it gets so much better. Hang in there, seek out the help you need. You are attending one of the best universities in the world! Take advantage of every opportunity!
