Going into university knowing no one?

A photo of lifelikethis lifelikethis
I still haven't made my decision and one of the major reasons why is because out of my top two, at one school I know people going there and I wouldn't be going in completely alone, for my other choice I don't know anyone going to the school. I just wanted to see if there was anyone else going into a school not knowing anyone? Is it hard to meet new people and make friends? Is it better to go to a school knowing no one and in a sense "start fresh"? Or is it better to go with to a school where you'll have your friends?

honestly, although you may not be going in alone, given a week, you probably won't talk to these people near as much as you use to, or you shouldn't be. don't let not knowing anyone stop you from making the better choice; almost everyone is going to be in the same situation so just make the effort to talk to people (frosh is a good time/place) !

What I loved about frosh week was how ridiculously easy it was to meet people.

I actually think it's a bad idea to go to a school where you know a lot of people. You'll tend to hang out with the same people as you did in high school and won't have a chance to find your own/a new group of friends.

From what I've heard, it's nice to know people when going into university, but it doesn't make a difference. You are bound to make new friends who are in your program, and you will find that it won't be hard to adjust to university life without knowing people.

Saying that knowing people will hinder your ability to meet new people is completely untrue. You can definitely meet people and make new friends as easily if you went to a university without knowing people going in. The reason for this is that there are a lot of new people you will meet in residence and in your classes.

In my opinion, don't choose the university based on who is going, but on the program, your preference, etc.

Don't even consider how many friends you have at a school when making this decision.

I'm going without knowing anyone. I didnt really do it on purpose, but I do think it'll be a great opportunity to start fresh and meet lots of people.

I don't see any problem with hanging out with the same people you did in high school. I knew lots of people (30+) from my high school who went to Western, and I was friends with a lot of them. Most of them went to one residence and stayed together as a pack, though they added a few new folks, and they're still together. What's wrong with that?

I don't think there's anything wrong with that, but I'd rather start fresh where no one knows me... I don't really like the people at my school anyways. :p

Nothing wrong with that but university is a chance to get to know different/new people and staying with the same group of friends may limit your opportunities to make new friends if you've already got an established crowd to eat and go out/hang out with. I'm still friends with my high school friends but I also have a separate group of university friends and it's nice.

I'm going to McMaster with a couple friends but it doesnt really matter because we probably wont be very close. They're in different programs and it'll be unlikely that we stay in the same res. I'd still like to stay reasonably close because I've known one these guys for 10 years but university is the time to make new friends not stick to your old habits.

If you end up choosing the school that your friends are going to, great you can see them there, if not start fresh no problem.

You are actually so esl it's funny.


Going to school without your old friends is refreshing. It's also a good chance to drastically expand your network of friends. You'll probably meet everyone in your residence on the first day. Bring a few beers and crack some with your floormates in frosh week. You won't regret it.

If you end up choosing the school that your friends are going to, great you can see them there, if not start fresh no problem.

I was in the same position....
but I'm choosing the school knowing no one.
simply because it was the better school for me.
I'm kind of nervous, but im going to make an effort to meet new people.
Just think... there are going to be thousands of first years in the same position as you.
I'm sure we'll both be fine.

I'm probably going to go for the school without knowing no one.
From everything everyone's saying it seems like the right choice.
It was the school I really wanted to go to, the only thing holding me back was the fact that I would be completely on my own and away from home.

Dude you just made the page WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too wide. Plus, adding all those numbers didn't really make your number bigger or anything, it just made it super precise. :P

Regarding OP's question, I've heard a lot of current uni students say that Frosh Week is one of the best ways to meet people when you go in knowing no one.

Two Words: Get Involved. I traveled across the country for university, never having been to the city, and knowing absolutely no one. Joining societies, clubs etc was the best thing I ever did. It got me involved in the campus community and I met tons of great people. As long as you get out there, talk to people in class, get involved you'll be fine.

I came to Carleton knowing no one, and I left with hundreds of friends. Relax. Don't go out of your way and sell-out your morals, and people will naturally gravitate to you.

Hundreds of friends at Carleton. Few hundred more from high school, the military, and cadets.
