How to Make Friends at College

Once you get to college, for all intents and purposes, you’re an adult. And when you’re an adult, it’s hard to make friends. Have you ever looked at the way adults interact with each other? They don’t really seem to like one another. So the question is: how are you supposed to make friends at college? Making friends in college isn’t all that hard. You would have to be incredibly anti-social to end up completely alone on your university campus. We here at The Chalkdown think it’s important for every college student to get the university experience that they deserve. That includes a shit load of stale beer and topless women (and bottomless men for our female readership). Crack a cold one, sit back and let us educate you on how to make friends at college.

Always have beer

Most of the college experience boils down to two things. Who’s getting drunk, and who’s getting laid. That is it. So, if you can’t get someone to stroke your shit if your life depended on it, it’s probably wise to keep a full mini fridge. Beer is a social catalyst. Offering one of your classmates a beer is an open invitation for getting to know them. If you always have a beer, you always have an icebreaker. It’s that simple. When it comes to making friends in college, any type of liquor will also do the trick.

Go to parties

College life is fantastic. Every night there’s a different party with a different group of people. As long as you belong to a few social media pages associated with your school, you’ll be invited. Parties are the number one place to be if you want to make friends fast (or if you wanna fuck that dude who hung out of his towel down the hall in your dorm). In college, the most superficial interactions will probably result in a few friends who stick with you for at least the next 4 years. Making friends in college is like getting laid in a whorehouse, it’s guaranteed. Be the life of the party. Be someone interesting. Hell, it’s college, be whoever the hell you wanna be. But if you wanna make friends, be a hell of a good time.

Don’t be picky

This rule applies to both friends and potential partners (fuck partners). If you want to learn how to make friends at college, you need to let go of your standards. Think of these friendships like a 4 year one night stand. How picky do you really need to be? And the best part is that you’ll probably end up liking them a whole hell of a lot over that period of time. Above all, never say no to a hangout. You never really know who’s gonna be there. And those are the times when the best shit always happens.

Making friends in college classrooms

Always sit next to the hot chick. One of the best ways to befriend a hottie is to ask her to play hangman in the middle of class. Above all, this will establish a benchmark for her tolerance to your stupidity. If she giggles and plays along, she’ll probably enjoy the rest of your personality. If she doesn’t, well then fuck her, who needs her. Move on to the next one. Befriending the hot girl is important for a few reasons. First of all, she more than likely has a whole hell of a lot of other hot friends. Which is great for you. And she probably knows a lot of cool guys too. Never underestimate the power of a stone cold hottie.

Whether you’re looking for someone to pal around with for the rest of your life, or someone to just pass the time and make fun of fat people, follow these rules and your sure to be making friends in your college classes in no time.
