Starting new. - July 24th 2010, 04:51 AM

I'll be going to college in about a month. I'm really excited and all, but I'm absolutely terrified that I won't make any friends.
I know I should join clubs, sports teams, organizations and stuff when I get there, I'm just afraid I'm not good enough at anything to be a part of something like that.
I'm also painfully shy, so that doesn't help, either.
I don't want to spend another four years by myself, and people keep telling me that "college will be different."
I know it's completely up to me to make it different, problem is, I have no idea how.

Join those clubs, sports teams, organizations :P

It really does help out. There are many students going into their first year that are thinking the exact same thing as you. Put forth a positive attitude, and you're bound to find people you can connect with.

Participate in class too. There are many people that appreciate students that are very engaged in their studies, and you can use things you learn in class as conversation material to start off with when building a relationship with someone.

Perhaps there's an online forum for your school for incoming freshman? Check your school's website out for resources for new students. Whether it's resources such as a career centre or orientation activities for new students, you should definitely take advantage of all the things colleges have to offer - specifically to new students.
