How to Gain College Friends (6)

I took a rather different route from most of my peers, so now I sit, age 18, with a year left in community college before I transfer into the four-year college of my choice, which happens to be in the city that I live in. My friend circle consists of high school friends that I don't really want to be that close to anymore and a few college friends that I can't seem to get that close to anymore and that seem like dead-ends as far as meeting new people through. Community college is a dead end for friendships too, as nobody bothers to even learn each other's names in community college, let alone establish relationships. How do I make friends with college students and live the college lifestyle without actually attending college? And how do college students meet each other and make friends and stuff? My current college friends are complete shut-ins, and that is not what I want out of college. Is it going to be possible to create meaningful relationships like it used to be?

Try sitting near people who you think may be compatible with you in local coffee shops and see if they notice you or if they're trying to figure something out that you know, that's a good in as well.

I am in college. All my friends are either dormmates or people from my classes.
I guess easiest way for me to meet new people is right after you give a test. Mostly people discuss the answers after the test, so you can turn to the person next to you and ask them about their test, then offer to study together if you like the person. Knowing one person well means you get to know their friends eventually and so on.
Hope it helps. I do the same as I realized that it is vital for me to know atleast someone in class. It actually gives me a reason to go to class and also helps when you miss classes
