  1. Facebook is a great way of networking and making even better friends with people you might already know. For people you don’t know try some of the friends sites such as make friends online or http://www.drinkingpartners.com. Believe it or not studying in the library in groups also worked for me, and project class work helped. The best thing is to go to student night outs quickly, so maybe just ask your people in your class if they fancy going or if you can join them.
  2. how to get friends says:
    Some good tips, but important to realize that you can’t just be friendly, say hello and expect to make friends over night. You have to do it regularly, and also try to make small talk as much as possible – that way you will get invited to parties.
