I am transferring this fall from a smaller school and this has been a major concern for me. I am painfully shy, take forever to warm up to people, and am socially awkward and I really don't want to be miserable here like I was at my old school.
All my friends from high school, I was friends with since elementary school. So when I got to college, I guess I really didn't know how to make any friends since all my previous friends I had known all my life (as stupid as that sounds..) I joined clubs and organizations, but I never made friends from those. I also have no idea how to make conversation with people I don't know very well. I don't want my college experience at Madison to be like what it was at my old school, because that was the most lonely I have ever felt in my life. What can I do to make friends there?
