Life-long Friends Start in College

When you go to college, you will probably not know anyone. You will have a roommate but you want to meet new people so that you can have someone to hang out with during the weekends or even have a study buddy. Meeting new people may seem scary at first but there are many ways to do it! When you go on campus, you will have the opportunity to break out of your shell. Want to know how to make new friends? It’s really easy!

Meet New People

When you go to college as a freshman, there are many ways for you to meet new people. Colleges offer on campus events for students to socialize with other new students. If you want to meet some new people, head out to one of these events. Highlighter parties are a great way for you to have a great time and make friends. There are many clubs on campus, so if you want to meet other students who like and enjoy the same things you do, you could join a club. If you enjoy skiing, you could join the campus ski club to meet other people who love to ski as well. If you want to make a difference, you could  consider joining a sorority or fraternity. By joining a frat or a sorority, you will be meeting new people, making new friends and having a support system for life. If you want to join a frat or a sorority, you will have to go to events during rush week, which is usually the first week of the new semester. You will meet the people in that group and see if it is a good fit for you. If you think it is, you will be able to apply to become a member and if the sorority or fraternity bids on you, you will go through the initiation process. Another great way to meet new people while you are away at college is to take on a job. You can work on campus or off campus. On campus jobs are available to students and you may be able to work in the library or even the dining hall. While you are working, you will get to talk to some other students working there and you may find that you have some things in common. Making new friends isn’t hard at all!

It’s Not Hard

When you go to college, you may find that it is scary to not know anyone, but meeting new people is not hard at all. When you think about it too much, it can seem intimidating, but all you have to do is go to some campus events and socialize. Join some clubs if you want to meet other people with the same interests as you. If you want to, you can get a job and meet people that way. All you have to do is break out of your shell and be yourself! You’ll make friends in no time.
