For most, college is the first opportunity to experience freedom and independence away from home, while living in a community full of people your own age. That being said, attending a college is a huge life adjustment and comes with many changes. These easy tips will help you adjust more easily to your collegiate lifestyle and make the most of your time away at school…
1. Be friendly!
Everyone is in the same boat when they first arrive at school. Introducing yourself to the people that live in your dorm or take the same classes as you is an easy way to make friends. You never know, the girl who lives next door could end up being your best friend for the rest of your life!
2. Keep your dorm room door open.
Not only do you meet more people by keeping your door propped open when you are in the room, you will get a better feel for what is going on in your new residence. You can wave at people as they pass by or join in on a game going on in the hallway without missing out on anything while also showing off your perfectly paired milk crates, twin extra-long comforter and band posters.
