I have no friends - Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
How the hell do you approach people at uni? I have no friends. I'm always sitting on my own in lectures/seminars. How do I make a friend so into the year? Lol, I'll just be that loner.
I made sure I attended some of the social functions that were organised.
I also joined a sports club, it's a great way of making new friends, I still have these friends to this day and I graduated over a year ago.
By the way idle curiosity really, are you male or female,?
Societies are a pretty good way, as well as being in group chats that either you / others create.
The common advice I give to everyone is just... put yourself out there, go, drag your feet and speak to them.
Open your mouth and some words will leave without you even meaning to say them!
If you make the effort with people, I guarantee they'll remember and appreciate that.
After the first few times it gets easier
