3 Ways To Make Friends In College During Covid-19

In college especially during this troubling time, it can be hard to find friends.

3 Ways To Make Friends In College During Covid-19

I know it’s hard to make friends right now, so here’s some tips

1. Become Friends With Your Roommate

Not everyone has had the same experience as me but I am so happy with my roommate We get along and communicate which is a recipe for success. When you get a roommate immediately set boundaries, talk about your sleep schedules and what your schedule for school are like! Being on good terms with your roommate is so important. If they do something that upsets you or it makes you feel uncomfortable, talk to them about it immediately. I have heard so many stories of roommates not liking each other when in reality, the whole situation could have been fixed if you had set boundaries in the beginning.

2. Become Friends With Your Hall Mates

Because of COVID-19, there are not to many ways to talk to students during class. Many of us now have to become friends with the people we see the most. The people in our hall. It may see weird to say hi to someone who may not live near you but it is a great plan. That is how so many friendship will have to build off of now that classrooms are making students sit six feet away. If you have a lounge area or communal bathrooms, awkward I know, but for many when trying to make friends this will be the easiest way! Now the next time they see you, you can say hi as a friend instead of a stranger!

3. Say Hello To People You Normally Would Not Talk To

Many of us have just left high school and are looking for many new people to talk to. Just because you only had friends with certain qualities about themselves does not mean you still have to hang out with those same people anymore. It can be good to stay in contact with people or it might be time to branch out and meet new people. There is no harm in saying that you wanted to be a different person and hang around new people. Not everyone will be your friend but at least you tried! Try to make new friends, maybe grab lunch with someone you want to know better! You never know, they might end up being one of your closest friends!

Making friends can be a test in college but these three simple things hopefully will help! Best wishes to everyone in schooling and stay safe!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
