Uni Problems - When you're not in the same seminar group as your best friend :(

Even though me and one of the best friends I have at uni are both doing the same modules this year, I found out that she's in the only other Friday seminar group for our first module :-(

Pretty bummed, honestly. This means I only see her twice on a Monday - we're third year so only have two modules and unscheduled dissertation sessions which are obviously one-on-one. She's a very introverted person who prefers to spend time by herself rather than her friends a lot of the time so I'll only get to hang out with her outside of lectures occasionally :/

Can anyone relate? Why couldn't they have just put us together? I get it's random, but come on. I'm paying 9K for them to NOT put us in the same class? (This last paragraph is meant to be tongue-in-cheek, I'm not a Karen).

I don't really know what you expect people to say. You could always just ask to move groups. I've had this happen loads in my groups and it's not usually a huge deal

Nahhh, it’s not a huge deal - this is more a post I hoped people could relate to rather than a question :P

I've been placed in seminar/tutorial groups where I knew no one but I just got on with it. I feel like we're passed the stage where we need to have a good friend present at all times in order to engage (like for example at school), and it might help you to get to know some new people.

If you want to hang out with her more, ask if you can study together, or let her know that you'd like to meet up more often outside of an academic setting.
