Student life is more than just going to class. Friendship is an important part of your health and wellbeing.
Friends can help you feel happy when you are away from home. Take time to meet people and extend your friendship circle. Make talking to others a part of your daily routine. Many people are eager to make new friends.
Joining a club, student group, or organised activity is a great way to meet people and make connections to a new community.
