After successfully completing the matriculation, it is quite normal to feel nervous about going to a college for the first time. You keep thinking about how it would be like to study at a new place with new professors, new environment, and most importantly, the new friends. Friends are essential in life and it feels very bad to think that you might not be able to meet your high-school friends anymore because you are now getting an admission into a college. Well, change is a part of the time and we always get to meet new people in different stages of life. In this article, we will tell you five ways of making good friends in a new college.

Interact with them

To make friends in a new college, the first thing you should do is to interact with your class-fellows, greet them with a smile on your face when you enter or leave the classroom. To do this, first, you will have to introduce yourself to them and ask them to introduce themselves. After that, tell them about your likes and dislikes. Make an eye contact with your new friends and ask them about their interests, what they do in their free time, or any other thing you are interested to know about them. Also, you can ask for their contact numbers, and call them from your home when you are free. Talking more and more helps in building a better relationship with the friends.

Tell them good jokes

Don’t try to make fun of your friends, but it is always good to share some funny jokes to lighten up their mood. If you observe that one of your friends is looking unhappy, then it is the best time to tell him/her a joke. But make sure that it is a fresh and good joke because nobody would laugh if you tell an old joke.

Share everything with them

Share everything with your friends and ask them what kind of issues they are facing in their lives. Try to understand their problems and do your best to solve them. If you help your friends in their bad times, they will also do the same in return. Help your friends in the homework, the preparation for the tests and exams. Moreover, share some ideas with them for solving the study problems.

Meet outside the college

You can always meet your friends outside the college and plan for the dinner or a lunch with them. The more time you spend with your friends, the more you will get to know them. Also, don’t forget to visit your favorite places with your friends. Decide with them which place you would like to go with them in the vacations. Furthermore, you can also invite your friend to your house or go to his/her house for the combined studies. In this way, you can also get a chance to know your friend’s parents.

Send gifts to them

Who doesn’t like gifts? Send gifts to your friends on different occasions. You can send something special to your friend to show how much you love him/her. Other than this, it is always good to rejoice the events with friends. Celebrate your friends’ birthdays and wish them good luck in their lives. It feels really nice to take some lovely pictures with your friends and have some fun. Always be nice to your friends and talk to them in a good tone because no matter what you are telling them if your way of talking is not polite, you won’t be able to start a healthy conversation with anyone.
