4 Simple Ways to Make Friends in College That Everyone Could Use
  • Opening Intro -

    Going to college, whether you are a new student or a returning student, can often be very stressful.

    To add onto the pressure, it is not uncommon for people to feel completely isolated and to have no idea how to approach others and make friends while in college.

-------------------------------------

But worry not, follow these simple steps and you will be able to find quality friendships in no-time.

1. Be open about how you are

To be open about who we are means two things. First, we must accept who we are and what we love to do. We all know the stereotype of the perfect football player entering college, but that is not who you need to be in order to find friends. Be open about what you like and what you dislike to others, do not try to be someone else because, in the end, all the connection you make will seem superficial.

Second, to be open also means accepting to experience new things and getting out of one’s comfort zone. You do not need to follow a particular stereotype that you think is “cool”, but you also do not need to reject everything which is new. Take some risks! Try new things! A new school also means new you, and you can discover things about yourself you never expected before.

2. Introduce yourself to people in your class

Usually, the first day of class the vast majority of students look at each other without ever saying a word. Trust me, everyone will be like you, hoping someone talks to them or breaks the ice.

Well, instead of hoping, why not take the initiative? Simply introduce yourself to your seatmates by stating your name and asking in what program they are studying. You will have thousands of new person to meet around you, so you better start from day one. If you have no idea how to introduce yourself, you can follow these simple tips: http://www.wikihow.com/Introduce-Yourself-and-Impress-People

3. Go to your frosh and other back-to-school activities

You do not like drinking and wanted to skip frosh? Bad idea if you want to meet a lot of people. Despite popular belief, not everyone wants to get overly drunk at frosh. Many people will be like you and simply want to meet new people. If on the other hand you planned to get drunk, then try to not go overboard and create a bad impression of yourself.

Frosh is literally an event made to create new friendships, so use it at your advantage. Other back-to-school activities will include a day where all the club have a stand to present themselves, various house parties, and so on.

4. Join a club

This is not for everyone, but honestly the variety of club in college is so vast that almost anyone can join one. Gamers, chess players, drone amateur, actors, musicians, readers and a lot of other hobbies have dedicated clubs in college. By joining one, you will be able to meet people with the same interest as you which will create more chances to have a long-lasting friendship.

To conclude, there are many ways to make friends in college. Always remember that most people will be as anxious as you to meet new people and do not be afraid to take the initiative. Trust me, people will be grateful when you introduce yourself and become their friend.

If you are too afraid to take the initiative, then share this article so that many other students follow this advice and perhaps one of them will decide to break the ice with you because of it! You can also simply share it to help your friends feel more relaxed while in college, after all these advices have been tested and approved by many people!
