    I'm entering my second year, and due to personal reasons, kept to myself and had trouble making friends. I didn't attend freshers, and I want to know how to get more involved this time around as a student who isn't living in halls/flats and is still living with family.
    How can one make more friends?

    Do's and Don'ts might be helpful.

    Thanks guys, in advance!

    If going on nights out isn't your thing - totally get it, it isn't mine - then really don't try too much in that way, or get involved in drinking if it's not your thing.

    Have a look at the schedule and see what interests you and pick those things out, and you'll probably get to interact with people in the events, depending on what it is, and just try to have a natural conversation as possible with the people you meet and if you click, pursue it further.

    Definitely give societies a go. Even if you try something out and end up not liking it, it's still a great way to meet new faces, introduce yourself, be confident. Try lots of new things and I'm sure you'll find something you like.
