    Got a similar worry, as i'm not a '(Stereo)typical' student. I'm sure there will be at least a few people who are on a similar sort of vybe as you and through societies etc. there shouldn't be any problems in making freinds.

    As long as you make the effort to say "hi" to people and introduce yourself, you'll make lots of friends.

    It doesn't matter if you don't drink, it really doesn't. I don't drink immense amounts but still have a good time when I go out with my friends that do drink. It shouldn't make a difference, people will respect you for who you are, and if they don't, than you don't want to be friends with them - simple as that.

    Just be yourself, cos you're sure to find other people out there who like doing the same things that you do!

    I'm exactly the same; way too quiet and shy for my own good. But, uni is all about a new start So I'm hoping living on my own for my first time and practically being forced to make friends so I don't end up as a loner will help me become slightly more confident.
    I don't drink much, and it's true, people do respect you for not drinking. I know all my school friends do. So don't worry, so many people are in the same boat you're bound to make many many friends
