Making Friends in College

Posted by Marissa

College can be an intimidating place if you don’t know anyone. Many students who have a good experience in college have most likely made a strong group of friends. I encourage all new students to make as many friends as possible so that they become more comfortable in their new home over the next few years.

 

Keep the tips below in mind once you start your college career.

 

  • Introduce yourself to people in your classes. Not only are you making a friend, but a study buddy as well.

 

  • Join campus clubs. Being involved in clubs is a great way to try new things and make friends while doing it!

 

  • Volunteer for organizations. Volunteering not only looks good on your resume but also is another way of forming relationships with students.

 

  • Go to school events. Whether it is a sports game or guest speaker series, make sure you go and mingle with fellow colleagues!

 

  • Work on campus. Many campuses offer student employment on campus. This is another way to make money and form bonds with fellow students.

 

  • Involve yourself in sports or physical activity classes. Being part of a team is a great way to make life-long friendships!
