That is what I do at my uni. I know so many different people(Original post by Get Cape.Wear Cape.Fly.)
Throughout my sixth form I was a massive floater...lots of people were. I, like some others, ate lunch/hung out during empty lessons with different people everyday. I even made several close friends amongst the hundreds of acquaintances. I prefer getting to know loads of different people and spending time with them all instead of sticking to one clique. Guess that doesn't cut it at uni?
Just be yourself, dont be needy, clingy and everything just falls into place

All this advice is really bad, op, you're an ass.

if I had to choose either following your advice or not having friends, I'd go for the latter.

6. If you commit too early you may discover you are hanging out with a group that on closer inspection is a social embarrassment to you, or a group in which you always get **** on. These socially inept, crass or loutish individuals who take you for a friend could come back to haunt you again, again, again and again, when you least expect years down the line. So NEVER commit to ONE group of friends in the first week.
I'm also unsure as to what is meant by "committing" here- Dunno about the OP, but when I went through Fresher's week there weren't any binding friendship contracts or initiations to go through.
The OP is in a sense correct in that you should certainly get to know as many people as reasonably possible to increase your chances of finding the right types for you, but ignore all this rubbish about choosing fashionable friends!
