Top Advice for Sun Devils Going Abroad: Just walk around and explore! Try as many local cuisines as you can. Talk to the local people even if their language is not your first language. Also, find a good balance between doing as much as you can (activities, excursions, etc.), while still getting enough sleep. I made that mistake the first week!
