    Hiya,

    I'm in year 1, just started uni. I'm a continuing student though, came from foundation year and moved on to another course when that finished. But anyway...I feel really depressed going to uni. I can't click with anyone. Idm the course I guess, but it's just the people. Please don't get me wrong, I'm sure they're nice people, it's just...Idk...

    My previous foundation year course was nice, I knew everyone, we all got on well, we were one big happy family.

    But in this course, whenever I do group work with others and I voice my opinion and give ideas, they just stare at me and not say anything.

    Like, I'm trying to be myself and be nice and all, but I can't click with anyone!

    I feel like changing course cause this is ruining my entire experience with the course. Uni just started and I already feel like skipping class... ._. In foundation year I would always go, I found it fun and interesting, but this course, it's just eh...

    do you share a flay with people from foundation year? if so then they can be your main friends. I'm sure after while everyone will get used to each other and talk more.

    Not sure if this is how it works but if the majority of people there don't know each other everyone will be the same as u in the fact that they are all kinda freaked out away from their friendship norms of the foundstion year. Try and push them out of their comfort zone to talk to you as well as your own and maybe they'll warm up to yoj
