Experience 1

I had a pretty rough start to college. I knew a couple of other kids going from my high school but we weren’t really friends so I didn’t try to reach out to them. For a while it felt like everyone else was having a lot of fun and making friends and I was on the outside. I went home a lot the first semester and felt like I was different from everyone else. It felt like they all got something that I didn’t. In October of my first year,  I met another student in my psych class, and we started talking about how hard the tests were. We decided to try studying together. We ended up getting close and I started hanging out with his friend group. Looking back I realize that it wasn’t just me. Making friends in college can be hard, but it can get better.
