In my first year I had a lot of friends and we would go out and drink and party and everything went fine, but this year I felt like i've been missing out as I decided to quit drinking because i didn't like the impact it was having on myself and my studies, I also became a christian and started going to church. Now I have lost the friends that I used to go out partying with and my best friends have become distant and don't really talk to me. I don't even see my flatmates that much the only social interaction I have is with my course mates between and during lectures. How can I make more friends in my year when they all have friendship groups? I'm also really shy and introverted.
I feel like I have no close friends left in uni Watch

Hi don't worry
Join societies and you are bound to meet potential friends who share similar interest and hobbies with you.

Its very hard to make friends when everyone has there social group. Maybe try and get a chance to get one on one with some, get close and maybe they will get you into the group?
There are bound to be tons of people sat alone in lectures, go speak to them.
However you are in a good situation, those course mates you talk to, why not go and ask them to hang out after uni?? maybe start small with lunch or coffee. Then go for dinner, watch the footy, whatever your interests are?
socs is a good way to meet people to? im sure there will be a Christianity soc? you can meet like minded people like yourself
