Ask for help

So you are new to the campus, and you might not know everything about it. Do not hesitate to ask for help and approaching the seniors if needed. Seniors are always so sweet in helping their juniors because they know the feeling of fresher as once they were also a fresher. Want to know about college parties? The campus trips or about the placements? Go for it and hit it with your queries. And by chance you are not getting favorable answers, go directly to your teachers top seek the desirable answers.

Make friends with your roommates

Do you live on your campus hostel? Or taken a flat to live nearby the college? There are chances you have the roommates with you because hardly are the colleges offer a single room to the students.
Get to know your roomiest. Try to understand their culture and background by keeping good and healthy conversational spirits.

Come up with the best in you

Do you find interest in dancing or like singing?
Do the best in the campus functions. Do not miss a chance to be a part of any gatherings and parties. By meeting new people, you get to find your area of interest. The more you interact with new people, the more you will identify what is right, what is bad for you.

And this appeals for the best in a person as an overall personality.
Campus life teaches you a lot. This is the age group you are learning many new things, some to build up your talent wise,m some to shape up your career accurately.

choose your friends wisely

It happens many times that students get along with some people they think can bear with them all the 3 years but later or may be in the 2nd semester, they try cutting off with them and look for their preferences.
To avoid such things. Start with it at the very beginning of your college life(first year). Friends are there for social, moral support, to share all your joys, worries!
Take time and seek them slowly, it is not that hard but worth the time you spend in finding the right ones for you. The friendships you get here could last for a lifetime.
