I have already been to two colleges and I will be going to my third this fall. I started out at a very small performing arts college in Pittsburgh, PA. I am not into the performing arts at all but was going to the school for their awesome journalism program so I was a bit worried that I wouldn't find friends with the same interests also. When I got there I realized that I didn't know anyone so I would have to just put myself out there and be outgoing. I made a lot of close friends but decided that the school wasn't for me. I didn't know where else I wanted to go and didn't have much time so for spring semester I went to a local community college. I was working a lot and taking over 20 credits so I never really had time/tried to make friends, and therefore didn't. If you want to make friends, just talk to people living on your floor at college, and in your classes. They are in the same situation so no one will think you are a loser or desperate because everyone is in the same situation. I bet you will have no trouble at all making friends. My one problem was that I have never met another diabetic, like me, away at school. And I wouldn't even know how to go about that.
