Is Uni social life better than 6th Form in general?Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
I found uni to be more social. You get more chances, but you have to take them. For example, the first day I moved in people in my halls were inviting people to their flat parties to meet everyone and I went and this is how I met a lot of my friends at uni. Don't be scared to not go because you don't know anyone, that's the whole idea, to meet people who also don't know anyone.
I found joining a society the best thing to do while at uni. It gave me the chance to try something new while meeting people that weren't on my course or lived in my halls.
I hope this helps!

I hope you're well
I always say, University is definitely a 'what you make of it' experience - so if you put in the effort to make new friends / go out and make the effort with others, they will of course make the effort with you. I think it also helps that there's such a wide variety of people that go to University, so there will definitely be people that you click with. Additionally, if you join societies that you have an interest in, you'll natrually meet people that you're more likely to click with and gain good relationships through
Best of luck to you!

Sometimes stuff like making friends doesn't always happen straight away in the first year. Every year I've met new people and friends. I would recommend you to try to get yourself into some societies that interest you and see if they're doing any events. That is a great way to meet new people.
And just talk to people! It is very possible that many other people are feeling like you, so you can always reach out and start a conversation with anyone you see sitting by themselves.
I am sure things will start getting better!
