"I thought if I came to a city school, I'd be able to meet a lot of diverse people," said Jaden, a student in Boston University's College of Arts and Sciences. "Now, I look around and there are tons of diverse people everywhere, but I'm just not meeting them."
"I usually will meet new people in class or through friends of friends," said Savannah, a student in the College of Communication. "I am not super outgoing, so I have to rely on other people to introduce me to others."
"The best way to meet people at BU is to just be outgoing," said Ally, a student in Questrom. "Especially freshman year, everyone is in the same boat and they want to meet new friends. So it is always cool to just introduce yourself.I heard that, the worst thing you can do when meeting someone new is act self conscious. People are attracted to other people who are confident and comfortable in their own skin."
"I've met people all over Boston," said Robert, a student in Sargent College. "I'm not afraid to approach someone I think is cool. If I am out and I see someone that gives me good vibes, I will say 'what's up' or ask for directions. Any random question that gets a conversation going works."
