    I was wondering if when you go to college if your social life improves and you go to more parties and stuff because at the moment I have friends but we only go to small gatherings.
    Next year I really want to go out more and find a new group of friends

    Mine didnt really change between lower school and sixth form, and thats including the fact I changed schools. Between year 7 and 11 I went to 3 gatherings, at sixth form I've been to 1.

    Your social life has the potential to be improved, but don't waste your frees because of it. Sounds simple, but really. An hour and a half gone, in the blink of an eye, three days a week, like thirty weeks at least a year. Not good.

    It could do, depending on your college, but I'd focus more on seeing what you can do yourself to improve your social life.

    Mine certainly did. At high school I had 5 really close friends a few extended ones, we had a lot of sleepovers, small parties and went out at weekends. I had a brilliant group. But when I went to college it improved even more, because I went to college with no one despite having amazing friends at HS because it was the best place for me.
    So now I have my old high school friends who I see occasionally, who have parties and I have made friends wth their friends too, but I have new friends from college (about 10 close friends and a bigger extended circle) and we have much bigger parties, but we don't do as much stuff at the weekends/have sleepovers like I was able to do in high school because we have so much more work to do.
    I think what happens is your social life changes. I go to more parties now, whereas before I would just hang out with friends, but that's harder for me at college because of the workload and distance between me and my new friends due to a massive catchment area, that doesn't stop us having amazing parties though! I don't use my frees to socialise though (apart from now, as all my exams have finished and i have no work or revision).
