I am a soon-to-be physics major starting freshman year of university very soon, I'm sure at least a few users who come onto this sub-forum can relate. So, I am wondering about what advice about being physics student (or generally about college) those of you who are much wiser and experienced in academia would like to pass down. I'm not seeking for career guidance advice, but rather advice on how to approach what basically seems like a whole new life (when compared to living at home through high school). I apologize in advance to the moderators if this post is too vague in direction. I just thought that getting this topic going would be helpful to others as well as myself considering it's that time of year.
