My Experience and Tips on Making Friends in College

Movies and TV shows portray college to be the best four years of your life. You’re supposed to meet your lifelong best friends right?

Well, in my experience it doesn’t happen as quickly as it does in the movies.

So today I’m here to tell you my experience and give you some tips to hopefully make it easier on you.

But before I start, I should mention that I’ve never had much luck with making friends until college and it happened by pure coincidence, so do with that what you will.

(I should also mention that I’m a commuter so making friends was much harder than I imagined.)

Anyways, I’ll start from the beginning which was freshman orientation. I met a few nice people before the semester started, then had a long summer break and I failed to stay in touch with any of them.
