Making friends at community college?

I'm home schooled and will be starting community college this next school year. Due to being home schooled, I only have a few friends I can regularly hang out with, and I'm really excited to expand my social circle and meet new people! But I'v

Answers:

Just be yourself

I am over 50. I am still in touch wiht a few friends I met while at CC. I will say my CC was rather large and offered many activities. I was in the campus radio station and very involved in theater there, in between classes everyone on the radio station hung out in the stations office,
Our radio station was next to the student entertainment committee. I hung out the students from there too.
The campus newspaper had quality a few student working on it.
There are ways to join in and meet other students in a small social setting.
Find out what your school offers. Groups to join in campus.
Check out a part time on campus job. Working in the book store or library will help you meet other students

You will have plenty of opportunities to meet new people at a community college. It's true that there are going to be fewer clubs and social events than at a large university, but there is still plenty to do.

Watch for someone that looks friendly. Smile at them. If they smile back, say hello and go from there.

How many friends do you need? It's said that in an entire lifetime a person would generally have 3 good friends, all others are considered acquaintances (who come and go throughout your life). Unless you're in a 4-year college and join a fraternity or sorority and go to dances and sports, maybe cheerlead, maybe have joined a glee club or marketing group, then you're not going to have acquaintances either.

You might find an organization you'd like to join maybe one that likes making food (so you can enjoy that together) or if you like to golf then take a short course or get a job at a sports apparel shop, etc. to meet people. At community college you'd meet people while standing in line waiting for the classroom door to open for class. Some people go dancing in the evening to meet others (there might be the problem of alcohol, drugs and sex there though which might be a problem).

Whatever you've heard about the difficulties of socializing at Community College will be true wherever you are in life, whether it's at a Community College, a 4-year college, your first job, etc.

Don't worry about what others say; make your friends. Sometimes you'll succeed, and sometimes you won't. Again, this is true wherever you are in life.

By the way, home schooled students are usually ahead of the curve academically. Home schooled students tend to be more focused and have more discipline. Good for you, and good luck!

There aren't many opportunities for students to mingle and chat at a community college. Everbody always seems to be in a rush. That being said, I've made many friends in classes where chatting is common, such as art classes and PE classes, or labs. So try to fit a couple of those into your schedule.

Libraries got books on how.
Find read "how to win friends and influence people"by Dale Carnegie proven inexpensive effective worldwide for generations

It was easy for me because I took good notes. Then after college, I didn't see them anymore.
