I've noticed people tend to stick to their own. In my own circle there are three south asians and one black person. In my wider circle of like 10 peop;e theres like mostly south asians, one european guy and 2 black people. I've noticed some of my whtie friennds their circles usually have mostly white people and then one or two peopel of other ethnicities. I've always wondered why this is.
I go to qmul btw.
I am south asian and I kinda wanted to experience a more diverse group but a lot of my friends are from the same ethnic group so there isnt much of a culture shock or a new experience for me.
During school/college, my friends were mainly white. Now in uni the friends ive made are all POC/BAME. However, I dont have any friends (or even acquaintances) who are the same ethnicity as me.

I don't even have any friends.
But most of my acquaintances are East Asian, though that's most likely due to the fact that my course is 75% East Asian.
I think only like 3% of people on my course weren't white, one of those people was in my friendship group. In halls there were lots of international students in my building so my friendship group was majority not white.
Mostly make friends with people every race but my own (black), not by personal choice, but cause I seem sus. I don't mind though.
80% of the time yea, typically its because you have more in common at day 1 so you naturally just gel and find each other.
Same thing happens with french and irish students,
I found the same thing at my uni, people from the same ethnicity as me always came up to me and we became friends, however what I found was besides our ethnicity we had nothing in common. So I started making an effort to get to know other ppl.
Also people mix a lot by class and what kind of schools they go to.
