    I've just started my second semester at uni, and the novelty has kinda worn off. I'm worrying that I dont have enough friends at uni. I'm a social person and I enjoy partying and going out etc so that isn't a issue with me, but I feel like i see people around me in massive groups and always together. I get on really really well with one of my flat mates and we're moving in together next year with 6 others (that I know as well). I'm really close with a girl on my course and have some other people I talk to and get on with on my course, I'm also on a society where I've met some nice girls. There's also a few that attend another uni nearby in the same city I'm close with but they're all 3rd year and will be moving away I guess my point is... I'm not exactly "lonely" but I feel like I should have way more people around me. Is this normal? I know it's still kind of early days but it does kinda stress me out..

    How many friends do you want? You're a first year student right? Join some societies, lots of first year students join those

    It sounds like you want to be popular or know more people but it's all about having close friends, which you could start with societies (as I mentioned) or with your flatmates. Besides you're only a first year student so you have another 2 years to make friends!

    I agree with above poster, join clubs and societies or even social clubs outside of uni.
