Start your own society, about what your interested in. Most societies are student run, so it is possible. Go to the student union office to find out more.

Wont really meet much people around my age at a job though. Plus, I'm not sure if I can be bothered right now, negl. Probably will after Christmas though.

You have to have other people to start it with you though. I don't have anyone to start one with, plus I can't think of something I'd wanna start myself.

Unless you are at a niche college like Courtauld or something, or a really small university I really struggle to believe that there are no socs you are interested. If that really is the case, I suspect that it won't really matter what socs are on offer - the issue is with you.

How is it with me? I know plenty of people that haven't signed up for any of the societies. The only ones I'd even consider are the sport ones where its filled with tryhards, e.g. basketball. Can't really be bothered with that and there's none others that I'm interested in the slightest.

Join some that your kinda interested or at the very least not interested in, if the people there are good than it should be fine if not you can just never come again

Of course it's on you. You can't think of anything that would interest you and you can't be bothered to try. What you want is to have entertainment laid out for you on a plate, but you can't even describe what that is.

Essentially, you are complaining that there is nothing interesting on offer, but you don't know what it is that would interest you. This is Greta Thunberg psychology. You don't know what you want, but you're quite willing to complain about what you don't want.

Hi,

You could try meeting people on your course, maybe in seminars or tutorials which are normally smaller than lectures so it will be easy to meet people. Also, this way you're regularly seeing the same people so again it's easier. I'm not sure if you're living alone or not, but if you have housemates or neighbours, that could be another potential way to meet people! If your uni has weekly uni-wide social events maybe go to those as well. Hope this helps. All the best.

I know what would interest me but the main problem are that theres too much people that take it seriously e.g. basketball. I don't want that, I just want to have fun playing it. I know someone who went to the basketball one and he was saying that everyone was taking it too seriously. Cam't be bothered with that. So I guess that's debunked your claim.

Housemates have their own friends, don't know any neighbours and I'm not even sure if we have tutorials really at my Uni. Seminars are next week so it's my last chance I guess.

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear that you're not interested in any of the societies at your university

I actually made some great friends through volunteering with my University, so I'd advise looking into different volunteering opportunities your University offers. This won't only help your friend-hunt, but it will also be something great to add onto your CV There are usually a lot of chances to get involved with different things, and they're usually advertised on your University's SU pages.

I hope that's helpful!
