My special tip is not to put too much effort on the idea of making new friends because it can cause you unnecessary stress. There are many clubs available on campus, and it will be great to join clubs together that meet the same interests. I usually offer people to grab lunch with me, so we can share conversations and make more connections. I enjoy socializing and love interacting with people. It can be quite difficult at first, but once you gain confidence, you will eventually find your way of socializing easily with others. My message is that you should not overthink and be afraid to go out. Instead, always be open-minded and enjoy your daily school life!
