I'm a sophomore transfer student, and while I really like it here at state I'm still having trouble making friends.
I mean I have a few acquaintances but no real friends yet. This is probably my fault as I consider myself to be kinda socially awkward. I don't like approaching people and I will always choose the seat in an isolated are when a room full of people. I just get so nervous and think that people will find me weird or like wish I hadn't sat next to them.
I also rarely ever text people just to hang out because I feel like I'm being a bother or that I'm being "that girl" who always tags along where she's not wanted. And I feel that if people really wanted me around they would invite me in the first place.
I've been told that joining clubs may be the solution to my problem and I am in a few, one of my favorites being MRULE because it really almost forces you to be social.
So first off, any suggestions on making friends? Because I've been told by my roommate that all of my self-consciousness is for nothing and that I'm actually a cool person.
And second, any suggestions on good clubs to join? Like not purely academic ones but social ones like MRULE?
