Hi! I have been at uni for a month now. I am finding it hard to fit in. My lectures are so huge that it's impossible to make friends and my flat mates are into different stuff to me. I have joined some societies but they don't seem to do much! Everyone else seems to have made loads of friends already! Does anyone have any tips for me? Thanks.
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    depends how easy u find it to make friends.

    the simplest solution is just to go up to people and introduce urself, u know, 3rd grade stuff. "hi, my names XXXX and i was wondering if u wanted to grab a drink". works on guys as well as girls, altho they might get the wrong idea. =)

    other solutions...ur a member of some societies, use those opportunities when u can. go to the union, get out and have some fun. make urself known.

    good luck.

    If there's anything more important than my ego around here, i want it caught and shot now

    Hi. I know how you feel. I just started at the beginnning of September. I've just been going up to people who I recognise from various classes & saying, "Hi, how are you getting along with that Music review?" or whatever. People are normally really impressed that I remember that they're in my really big class & are happy to talk about how their courses are going. This can then lead to, "so where are you from then? What other courses are you taking?" I figure once I've run into someone 5 or 6 times it's fair to ask them if they have a free and fancy going for a coffee.
    Hope this helps...
