In college, what is the best way to meet new people with the same interest?
In a couple of months I am going to start my freshman year of college and I am sometimes shy when it comes to meeting new people. So what is your best advice in getting to meet new people and managing my shyness?

One of the ways I found helpful was to look for student organizations to join. Circle K was a student group centered around volunteering and was a fabulous way for me to get out of my comfort zone, make new friends and be active in the community. Depending on your college there may be student resources to locate a variety of interest groups and extra curricular activities that may also help you expand your circle. Many colleges also host special events for their students which give opportunities to network as well. I would highly suggest reaching out to student services to get an idea of what resources are available to you.
Best of luck,

I think the best way to find people with similar interests as you is to join clubs or events being held at your school can be a good step in finding those people. Definitely helped me to find friends that way!
