I absolutely agree with Hailey. There are so many ways to make friends in college. I was very lucky, and found some of my best girlfriends in college, right in my dorm. We connected as we were all the first to go to college in our families and were all initially a bit homesick. We stayed up late studying, bonding, and telling stories.
We don't see each other all the time today, but we pick up right where we left off when we are together. Because we now live in a few different states, we make it a point to get together two times a year - once, just the girls and another with families.
I have no doubt that you will finds some wonderful friends for life as well!!
