Do not be afraid to put yourself in an uncomfortable situation. Most of the time the most uncomfortable situations lead to the greatest experiences. Also, during the orientation period try to meet as many people as possible because traveling with a group of new friends makes it even more rewarding.
Don't be afraid of going to a country with a different language. If anything else it just enhances the cultural experience and it is so fun learning phrases!
Don't be scared to reach out to other students and try to make friends. Everyone is just as freaked out as you are and they are always glad to have someone reach out to them.
