What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had been prepared for the reality of Greek life. While it is mostly fun, it can be overwhelming. In addition, your sisters/brothers can be very judgemental. In addition, if you aren't a heavy partier be prepared. You may feel left out at first, but there are plenty of people who feel the same as you. You just have to find them.
