Only 3 good science proffesors total. One advisor told me I should change majors while the other told me to keep at it. 50-50 chance you'all get one that really supports you.

Joining a club/sorority/frat is probably the best decision you could make at this university. Gives you and outlet from just studying and working. Great way to make friends and memories!
