I’ve been here a week and I haven’t made 1 friend... Honestly I had the expectation that I was going to come here and meet all these cool like minded people and that just hasn’t happened and I’m feeling rather disappointed. I’ve gone to some events and meet ups on campus and I haven’t made 1 friend..what am I doing wrong? Am I ugly or something? Everyone here already has a group of friends and I can’t get 1 person to hang out with me

you're making me scared for uni!

I would say it has only been a week so just keep going! I assure you that you are probably not the only one in this situation. It's just that it is very easy to assume that everyone has what you don't have.

Try societies and what about people on your course? Don't worry, just be active. I didn't make any friends at Uni until a few weeks later. Even then, I met my best friend in third year of Uni. Don't give up. Even if you don't get a chance to get a friend, make sure to pay attention to your own self-care and do things you love to enjoy anyway.

Trust me it’s not you. Everyone is nervous when they first start university and are usually very open to talking to and making friends with others. It’s only the first week so keep up what you are doing and I’m sure you’ll meet someone!

Even if you don’t you still have TSR

Well sorry. I was just like you last week thinking I’m gonna move here and meet people instantly and it’ll be so amazing and it just hasn’t happened that way. It’s my fault for expecting so much. But don’t worry you could have the complete opposite experience to me and make friends on your first day. Good luck

a week with one friend?

I've been here for 4 years and have 2 friends, friends which I only meet once a year no less.
