Commuting and having trouble making friends
I'm a freshman at Monmouth University and also a commuter. I decided to go to Monmouth for only one reason: my dad works at Monmouth and I can go for free. I decided that since I'm already saving money why not go ahead and save more by not dorming (which is around $13,000 at Monmouth). If it weren't for my dad, I would never have gone to Monmouth, as I never saw it as the college for me.
Now, I'm having trouble making friends because everyone is generally with each other 24/7 and I'm only on campus around 6-8 hours a day. I talk to people in my classes, but it's really hard to actually become friends while a professor is lecturing. I only have one good friend who is also a commuter and is in the same boat as me. I joined clubs, but they only meet twice a week and sometimes meet at 8 pm, which is really hard for me to go to. I have to stay at Monmouth for at least 2 years, but if things don't get better I'm definitely transferring. Any advice on how to make this better?
