In order to meet friends my first year on campus I got involved! As a campus change student from a very small branch campus, coming to Storrs was a culture shock. I did not know anyone and being in a small major, I hardly ran into people with similar interests as my own. So, I talked to people-everywhere! I joined clubs, went to the gym, moved to a different seat in class. Any chance I had I was talking to someone and it really helped me meet some of my closest friends. I saw every day as an opportunity to befriend someone new!
