So the 3 big things to do as a freshman is get good grades and pick out rigorous (Honors AP IB) and major related classes. Thirdly join at least 3 ECs preferably 5 and try to be present at all meetings so you can get leadership latter down the line.

Also freshman year don’t be afraid to drop ECs.

Hope this helps and comment if you need clarification.
