It’s an exciting time as you get settled into your new home and prepare to start the Fall semester. Staying focused on your classes is important but finding the balance and having fun during your free time is key to getting the most out of your college experience. Here are a few ways to make new friends and get to know your new neighborhood:
Join a club: Visit the UVA website for a list of clubs and organizations you can join to meet others that share your passion.
University events: These events can be academic and great for networking or social and perfect for meeting new people. An events calendar can be found on your university’s website.
Check out local events: Look for an event calendar on the community website or at your local library. Most communities will even have a Facebook page you can follow for notices. The Facebook Events tab will also show upcoming events local to you.
