I am an international student and will begin my first year undergraduate studies. Due to visa problems I won't be able to attend university until 4 days after the freshers week has begun. Will I miss out the 'prime time' of making friends? I am an introvert, and being extremely shy & having social anxiety doesn't help the situation. I am not the best in small talks so I'm worried that things will go really awkward and no friendships will develop beyond that awkwardness. And I assume small groups will have formed by then, so it will make it harder to blend in when everyone has their own friends. Please tell me there is still hope. I don't want to spend all 3 years being lonely and miserable.
'I was put in the STAFF block'
OMG........................ that seems so wrong!
