Chris’s Answer

Join groups with people with the same interests. These interests could be personal or if your wanting to stay more distant, look for group and activities that are related to your major/educational interests. Dont forget the old fashion way, take a change and reach out to someone.

Nathaniel’s Answer

Start by finding clubs or groups that represent what you are passionate about. This will help ease the initial tension and you will find it easy to relate to people with similar interests.


I decided to leave my home town to attend college and didn’t know anyone on campus. I really enjoy research and debate and decided to join the debate team. It was a bit awkward at first but once I noticed how many people were interested it made it very easy to start converse and make new friends.


Good luck!

I highly recommend getting involved in groups like fraternities, major driven clubs or participating in social events hosted by the student community office.

Maria Alejandra’s Answer

I agree with Chris, I often find it hard to come out of my "shell", till I have something in common with someone else. Finding groups that have some of my same hobbies makes it easier to make friends.

Jonah’s Answer

I am in the same boat as you - not antisocial, but don't meet new people that easily. The best thing to do is make the conscious decision to take that intial step into a social experience, such as events held on campus. It is intimidating at times to put yourself out there, but once you make that initial step, it becomes easier to continue participating in school functions.

Mark’s Answer

Try joining a club sport or volunteer group. It's a great way to build new relationships in a zero-low pressure environment. It worked for me!
