    Hello, I was wondering how to make a more diverse group of friends. I am a black student at the university of Warwick and I'm going into my second year. During my first year, I joined the Afro-Caribbean society and the Nigerian society, which meant that most of my friends are blacks. I definitely value and appreciate my friends but I have always had friends from different backgrounds, as I went to a very international sixth form. I think it is always much more interesting to have black friends as well as other international friends, which allows to learn about a whole range of cultures. How exactly do I go about getting more international friends, as my university is particularly racially segregated with international students, such as those from Thailand, Korea and even neighbouring France, keeping to themselves. I just miss having such a broad range of friends and the daily exposure to different cultures.


    I feel I get where you're coming from really, I think it's just about getting yourself out there, and speaking to different people, maybe start talking to others more and just introducing yourself a lot more, that's what worked for me! Warwick is quite a diverse place, I would say, so I'm sure, just say hello to a few people, and honestly be yourself!
    That's what I can advise
