A big fear of everyone I know — including myself — in relation to college was… How do I make friends?
I am of course here — late — to drop some wisdom
I love lists, so here are some ways to make some friends in a new place.
- Friends of friends.
- If you go to a college with friends that you knew in highschool then sticking with them and making friends of their friends is a good way to start. Then you can branch out once you leave HS behind.
- Live in a Residence Hall
- Can you tell I’m an RA? Bias aside, it is a fantastic way to meet people. You have to put in the effort to actually knock on doors but when you’re stuck on a floor/cluster together all year, you tend to find your clique.
- Step out of the comfort zone
- This means that if you are a shy person — if you are willing — talk to someone in line. The person that you sit by everyday. The cute person in the coffee shop.
Any of these steps are of course just suggestions buttt I do believe that they are effective.
Let me know what has worked for you.
