I hope you're settling in and enjoying your time at Exeter so far! It's great to see you are reaching out and open to making new friends - the first few weeks of university can be really difficult, especially as you try to navigate a new social scene!
There are a few things I found really helpful as I tried to make new friends at Exeter. The first was joining as many extra-curriculars and societies as I could. For me, this included running society and film society - both allowed me to spend time with like-minded people and expand my interests in certain areas. It was also just a great time to be surrounded by different people and integrate into the student community as much as possible. It was definitely daunting joining at first, but keep in mind everyone is in the same boat, so don't be afraid to show up and get involved!
You might also find that as the term goes on, you are put into group projects in your seminars, or sit next to the same few people in your lectures. Take time to make conversation and get to know the people on your course - it is likely you will be with a lot of these people for the next few years, so forming some sort of relationship with them might be worthwhile!
Above all, I would recommend staying positive and taking your time. There is no pressure to have formed a close group of friends by now - you will have plenty of time to meet new people and form strong friendships throughout your time here! Be kind with yourself and enjoy the process.
Wishing you all the best during your time here!
