Choosing the "correct" friends at college is more important than choosing friends in college. Because College is something where most of our career starts. So friends are the one who helps or guides us in achieving our goals and helps us in taking major decisions in our lives. I am saying this is because I experienced it.

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!

You could try joining a club or a sport of some kind, that's an easy way to start talking to people in that area of interest. If you can't do either of those things, look around. Have you read the book you see another person reading? Is your favourite snack also being eaten by someone else? Making friends is unusually hard sometimes, but even just a "Hi I'm -blank,- what's your name?" is a great place to start. Maybe make a list of topics you could discuss with people you want to make friends with? See if they're in any extracurricular activities, or what their major and minor is, do/did they have pets? Are they into a television show, or a type of music? Hopefully you'll be able to find something in common, and be able to work off that.

Get a part-time job at a local restaurant or bar. Find a fun atmosphere with people your age. You’ll meet some fun people and make a few extra bucks.

I would recommend attending fun events and activities outside of classes on campus as well as seeing what groups/clubs the college offers for you to either check out some of their meetings and/or join. Meeting other students in these environments would make things natural for you to meet people who may have similar interests.

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.

Hi Yenna,

If you decide to live on campus, your roommates can become great friends. It is also a great idea to attend the fun events that the school will put on. Try to find the events you are passionate about!
