3rd Week of College and no friends
Hi! So I just started my 3rd week of college at a small liberal arts school (~3,000) and I feel like I have no friends. I meet so many people and put myself out there but no one really seems interested in talking to me. Its also not like this is the first time I have ever bee somewhere where I knew no one, I have done lots of summer programs and I moved to a new town in middle school and I have always made friends within a few days. I know the college transition is hard but I'm starting to panic as it seems like everyone else has a friend group and solid friends, and I have like maybe two acquaintances and they aren't even a group. I have joined clubs and tried talking to people in my classes but they are mostly upperclassmen so it's kind of hard. Please give me some advice and tell me if this is normal. (Also I know I may seem kinda crazy but all my friends at other schools and everyone around me seem to have such solid friends already and seem to be thriving and I'm starting to freak)12 replies
