Meet People On Your Floor And Roommates
I know it can be intimidating to meet new people, especially if it’s hard for you to make friends. Some people are shy and don’t like putting themselves out there. I was like that at first but then I realized that I may as well put myself out there as myself rather than as someone who isn’t me. Most of the first people I met were on my floor and are kinda built-in friends. I will say you aren’t always going to vibe with the people on your floor which is okay, but you’ll be seeing each other daily so it’s nice to introduce yourself to them. I can tell you confidently that if you introduce yourself to people on your floor then it will help you talk to people you meet at events, classes, and just random places on campus. Also, your roommate is kinda like a built-in friend, as long as you get along with them. It’s good to get to know your roommate before you agree to room together. You’re gonna be living together so it’s good to know a lot about each other. My roommate and I weren’t able to meet in person until move-in day but I just knew that we’d be able to get along just fine and we are. We’ve only had a few problems, but we talked it out like adults and figured out solutions to those problems. If you and your roommate can’t get along or be able to talk to each other like adults then you’re probably not a good match.
Go To OnIowa Events That Interest You
If you like something, then someone else is bound to like it as well. Going to different events at OnIowa I was able to meet so many people that I have so much in common with as well. I know that it can be scary but it’s so worth it when you find that good group of friends and keep adding to that group of friends. That’s how I meet most of my friends in my friend group now through on OnIowa events. Then we introduced friends we had met at other events and they became part of our friend group. It just kept expanding and we just added two new people to our chat as well. Some of the events even ran out of stuff to do and we decided to have our own events with each other and just talk. These events that ran out of things to do lead us to create our own events with each other. Even if you end up going alone to an event you are bound to meet new people to hang out with for the rest of the day, it’s so worth it to go to OnIowa events.
Make Time To Spend It With Your Friends
Personally, my friends and I do this thing where we pick a tv show to roast and have a “family” game night situation on Friday nights. And it’s a big group of us as well, it’s so much fun. I also know that it can get hard sometimes to spend time with your friends with everything going on in your life. But trust me that it’s worth it to spend time with your friends because they are like your family in college. One tip I like to do is get my homework done during the school day and then leave time in the evening to hang out with friends because I want to be prepared if anyone just wants to hang out, chill, or just walk around campus. This is the way I hold myself accountable, especially during the weekends I don’t go home.
Your Friends Are Like Your Chosen Family
It is true when they say, that the friends you make in college are like your chosen family. Since you’re so far away from home it can be hard for people to see their family, even if they live fairly close to campus. No matter who you are we will always miss our families back home, so just create your little college family. It has helped me to know that I have friends on campus who are basically my family and that I can go to if I’m not feeling the greatest. Now, this is advice, I can’t make you have a college family, but if your mental health isn’t doing get then I suggest that having a family on campus will help in the long run. You have no idea how much my friends have saved me from when I’m in a dark place. These people that you call your friends from college will become like your family and don’t try to stop it because it’s something that’s a part of life and something to be proud of. I know my mom loves to see pictures of my friends and me on adventures throughout the city and she said she is so proud of me that I was able to find my people.
I know it can be scary trying to make new friends in a new place but the best part about the whole experience is that you’ll the people that are for you. Don’t be afraid to be yourself because the people you meet will like you for who you are. I never really thought I would find anyone but fate works in mysterious ways. Just think about the points up above and remember that you are perfect the way you are and if someone thinks that you aren’t then leave them be.
