If not, make a class- room announcement that you’re organizing a study group for all interested classmates. Study groups are a great way to learn course material while meeting classmates.

Working on campus is a great way to meet people while earn- ing some cash. Participate in alumni programs Visit your college’s alumni office and ask what they offer current students. They may have an Alumni-Student Mentoring Program that pairs incoming students with alumni.
