Succeed in College

Finding Friends

Information adapted from The Naked Roommate.

Harlan Says:

Take advantage of the new beginning that college offers. Do not let who you were in high school determine who you will be in college.

Don’t be afraid to take a risk once you arrive on your college campus. Approaching someone at the food court may be intimidating, but a friendship is the best result!

It may seem like you know someone, but it takes time to really know new friends. Be careful.
