    Go through a list of your university's societies and join something that interests you. I was a bit sceptical at first but I a semester on and all is good :-). I find it hard to get alone time now :s.

    Why do people place such great importance on social interaction? There's tons of stuff you can do alone- study, watch films, read, go to the gym, etc. Uni is only temporary- it is an annoying little stepping stone between school and a graduate job.
    Yeah... Graduate Job doesn't sound that much more interesting in terms of life prospect. Sure, I could read/watch entertainment... But it serves little purpose when I've got nobody to share my thoughts with.

    Best way to combat this problem is to have lots of different groups of friends. I've got 5 societies worth and then my coursemates and housemates (who are the same people) so i basically see someone different every day. It's enjoyable and makes me seem not needy if i want to hang out with friends for a week or something!

    I think i put too much emphasis on hanging out with my hall mates which has back fired on me now that i have fallen out with them. Luckily around this time last year in my first year i got really depressed and bored and made a huge effort in talking to more people and i joined a sports team. So I still have a few connections here and there but i really wish i had made more of an effort really. This place is tiny however so it wouldn have been hard anyway.

    i usualy see my friends (3 of them who are really close) about 6 times a week doing various activities from aeroball to games to films to hanging out to walking.

    The other friends who i am not so close to, usually about 1-2 times a week.
