Hi, I have just finished high school and have just attended my first introduction day at my college for the course in photography I want to take. I am worried about the lack of or no other boys in my class expect for me. I may be overreacting but I’m worried that I’ll make no friends because of this and it might effect school work. Will I be able to make friends that take different courses than me? Or is that unlikely to happen? Also how likely is it that there are boys that haven’t showed up on the introduction day but are attending the course? Please help because it’s really worrying me and making me question if I should apply for a different college

Hi, thank you for replying. I’ll ask my teacher for a class list, but at the end of the day I’m there to learn photography and it’s a pretty solitude subject anyway so maybe it won’t be too bad. The only thing is, is that at the college we don’t have dorm rooms or anything so there’s not even a guy there. I’ll try having a look at some clubs too, but if I don’t find something I like, Is it usual to make friends when going to the canteen?

Idk about the college you're going to but mine has lots of clubs/extracurriculars etc so I'm sure you'd find one that you like and you could make friends through those.
If not, you can and will most likely make friends with other people who aren't on your course, so honestly don't worry about it.
If you like the course and the college, it's not worth going to a different one over imo

no worries . yeaa it is usual . i mean , if you arent able to go in and sit with a group of guys then just go and ask some guy whos sitting alone if he would be fine with you sitting there and start up a convo .. or talk when you are in the queue about how you are a first yr and about not having guys in your class . people love to help and youll make many new friends.. theres the gym too
