I am part of the Barnard class of 2012, and I am just worried that I will not be able to make a small, long-lasting group of friends from barnard & columbia who are each doing amazing things in life. I am very mature for my age, love to laugh and I know how to have fun. I have a great down-to-earth personality, but I am still worried. People have said that I am an old soul in a young body. LOL. I am worried that other people even at an ivy league school won't be as mature as me. I came from a high school where there were soooo many immature people and wannabe "ghetto" people, so I stayed away from most of the wrong crowds and don't really have any friends from high school. I just want to stay away from anyone from new jersey, because I fear that knowing anyone there will bring me or connect me back into childhood drama with people I just want to never know again and want to escape from in New Jersey.
I hope that I end up with a roommate from California or a far-away place from NJ, so that I can start completely anew! I hope that my roommate and I can become best friends.
Is anybody at Barnard feeling like me? How easy is it to make friends at barnard college?
