SMU Social Life

Paul RusselPaul Russel Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
I have just graduated high school in Texas and am fully committed to SMU. Being a pretty social person in high school I expect to have the time of my life in college. I don't plan on joining Greek life (as my parents are crazy) but need to find ways to keep my social side occupied. Is that possible? I have an apartment off campus as a freshmen, access to alcohol, and was known for partying in high school but I'm going into college with no friends by my side. Any advice of navigating through parties without being Greek??

    I think one of the best ways to be "social" as a freshman would be to live in the dorms. I didn't think living off-campus was even an option. Hopefully you can still hang out in the dorms often.

    get involved in the student groups too like student foundation or program council - they are very large and a great way to make friends. Recruitment is delayed so you can go to any party youd want - tho some groups may be more up your alley than others. So long as you make some friends in a bunch of social groups you can go to their parties too - I often go to different parties hosted by friends, in different fraternities, I met freshman year
