While starting university can be full of new experiences and mark the exciting journey into adulthood, many students struggle with the initial transition from school or college. At Student Minds we have been developing resources to support you with this move and want to share our top tips with you!
Meeting new people
Not knowing many people can be a bit scary at first, but don’t let your ‘stress signal’ stop you from making new friends. Most people feel some stress when meeting new people and making new friends. Instead of thinking about meeting others as stressful, imagine how exciting it can be to develop new friendships and discover new ways of looking at the world. And remember, not every new person you meet will be an automatic friend. You get to choose who you will be friends with! The more people you meet, the more likely you will be to find another person who will become a friend.
