Depending on the type of person you are, it can be a good or bad thing. If you’re naturally outgoing, being in a new environment and meeting new people is heaven for you! However, if you happen to be on the opposite end of the spectrum, mingling and meeting people may not be so easy. So here are a few tips you can incorporate to help you meet people and maximize your college experience. These tips will all help boost your confidence making campus life that much better!
1. Be open – This is the start of something new and will definitely push you out of your comfort zone so just keep an open mind towards the entire process of interacting in this new environment and remember to remain positive.
2. Open door policy – Living on campus in a dorm (or residence hall as my university calls them) is the perfect place to meet people. Whenever you are in your room, leave your door open so people passing by can possibly pop their heads in and say hi!
3. Be involved – There is something for everyone on campus to become a part of. The best way to go about joining clubs, find them based on interests such as art, fashion or modeling, or even student government.
4. Attend campus events – The beginning of the semester, especially has a variety of events catered to inviting people to campus.
