Getting out there isn't about partying but it is about going outside of the classroom walls and finding ways to engage with your classmates and develop friendships. From happy hours and wine class to campus clubs, school events, dinner out with a few people you have met, or even socializing during the breaks from class—there are so many great ways to get out there. Don't underestimate how important this is early on. The time will fly by so realize that you have to chose to step into the experience and no one can do that for you. Talk to someone who you don't know and find out what you have in common or what is completely different. The only way to make new friends is to get out there!
