So I started my induction for uni yesterday, and we were put into groups. The people in my group were nice but they already knew each other from beforehand. So being me I had a hard time adjusting and I couldn't help but feel left out. They all seemed to indirectly not want me there. Like for example when I was walking with them during the campus tour they all seemed very quiet around me and just kept walking forward as if they didn't want to walk with me.
It was also very hard for me because during lunch I had to sit all by myself and I felt so lonely.

I don't know anyone in my course and I feel like at this rate I'm not gonna have any friends 😥

The socieites fair for my uni is today, but I cant go to it due to an appointment. Will this be a problem because it would mean that I wont be able to join societies?

Hi, you sound really upset after feeling left out. I can only imagine how that must feel when everything is so new. How were you feeling before you started? I can't give any advice as I don't know you but I do know that often the first people that you meet are often those that you end up trying to distance yourself from in the future.

Happened to me too and I think I wanted to cry as well. People just walked off with their "friends" they either made at the first course meeting or who they knew as majority knew each other from college.

Don't worry it does happen so you're not alone likely on campus I bet there's someone else in the same boat as you. So now you know the people on your course know each other, do you know how they know each other, is it because they live in halls together? I was in same boat and was alone on my first day but then managed to make a friendship group luckily. So just give it a few more weeks ..

What I'd suggest you would do is join two societies, you don't need to join at the fair but another day maybe online. During the initial weeks there's always something going on. Go to the Student Union area, become a rep, occupy yourself and maybe during the course you will make friends with them..I managed to and I'm super shy.

The ppl on my course already knew each other since college/student halls. The problem is that we are put into groups that we will have to be with for the whole year and the ppl in my group already knew each other so it was hard for me to adjust. 😭😢

The societies that I want to join aren't available online. 😭 I think in order to join them you have to go to the fair.

I was actually really excited at first but then after I realised I'm gonna be left out, I felt quite upset.

Try and get those people in a whatsapp group or something, and then invite them out telling them you would like to get to know them.

I'm so sorry to hear that. You said that this was the induction week. Will you be in different groups when you actually start the course?

I'm not sure because the timetable for the year is based on these gruops, so I have a feeling that I'm going to be in the same group for the year :cry:
