So, we have done everything required to gain an entry into the college. Okay, it is probably acceptable to freak out a little with this new significant change, but it should be a good opportunity to focus on learning and start building a path toward successful life in the college. It is the time to make lots of friends, though connections and networks. Students should give themselves the best shot at enjoying their college experience, but first, they should sit, walk and then run. In this case, they should do things step by step, before undergoing a successful college life. As an example, they should get their body and brain in the best possible shape to prepare for learning methods. They should be relaxed and meld with the environment. Just before starting their near endless study sessions, it is a good time for new students to make a lot of friends whenever possible.
Friends can really determine how we undergo our lives in the college and they can even cause us to make different decisions. Having friends in different areas of the college could make our lives easier. We can study with friends and start our day by having breakfast with them. We shouldn’t do this only with friends from our classes, but also friends that others introduce to use, friends at our part-time job and friends we meet when we are socializing. We should be able to keep our smiling faces, so other students will recognize us as friendly individual. We should also make friends with adult people too, such as professors, lecturers and college employees. No matter how shy we are and how terrified we are with the new surrounding, we shouldn’t fall into the trap of isolating ourselves with many people.
It is important to reach out and ask questions. People will appreciate it if we show them a genuine interest on what they do. Most of the time, they will return the favour. This way, we will not only make friends, we could also expand our world quickly and our life the college will be much easier. Many students put too much energy into their study and they make too few friends for their own good. If we are shy and find it difficult to find friends, we could make simple steps. As an example, we can go to coffee shops near the college and find out whether it is convenient to talk with new people there. We can keep up with college papers to know about campus events that we can attend. Our college should have many clubs that we can join. We could find one that looks interesting to us and find out whether we can join it.
New students should get involved with available organizations and find out whether they can do volunteer works. It is also a good idea to know whether their hobbies can also be applied into the life in campus. After doing this for a few months in the campus, new students should be able to gather more than a few friends.
