Most importantly be yourself! Schools hold a variety of events where students can get involved. If you are into sports or physical fitness, try signing up for intramural team sports or a work out class, even if you register by yourself! You might see someone from class, and can start up a conversation from that. Roommates (and even the other people who live on your floor) sometimes end up being the best friends yuo'l have over your time in college. Don't turn yourself off to a new friend, especially during your first two years. Most importantly just have confidence in yourself and in what your interests/hobbies are and you will meet people with similar interests over time!
Join clubs/ organizations. Volunteer at different events and get to know the people who are there. Don't be afraid to go up to anyone unfamiliar. Also, if you see anyone by themselves go up to them. Get to know them a bit. Maybe a friendship will flourish.
Making friends in college can be tough to do but, it doesn't have to be. In my first two years of college I lived on-campus and the later two off-campus. Throughout college, I did have a full-time job where I worked in the evenings. I made many friendships at work. On campus I developed friendships with my roommates and other circles. Here are a few of my tips for your consideration.
• If you live on campus get to know your roommate
• Have coffee or dine with people in your class
• Participate in school events
•Join organizations and clubs
• Work part-time
Best of luck to you. Now go make friends!👧🏽 👩🏽 🧑🏽
