    I'm in college in NY now and I am so alone. I'm horrible at making friends and it just seems that there's such a cultural difference. I just don't fit in. It's depressing and I miss home badly.

    Has anyone else ever felt this way before? Any tips on getting over it?

    Not sure where you've gone from to get to college in NY, but cultural shift is something that a number of people have to tackle when they go to college/university. You've just gotta put yourself out there and find a group of people that you relate to best. There are all types of people on a campus, that's one of my favourite things about it. Surely you've got a niche that you can fit into somewhere, or better yet, create one!

    I feel ya, I am doing terrible with talking to new people too, I have been lucky to have people I knew from HS around me but now there are new people this semester, a few who talk to me but I am so shy I am not communicating well, I think I am fooling them but I know I am coming off at least distant =[

    Hi OSG. I am glad to see you back. Hang in there buddy. It takes me a long time to make friends, too. I am starting my fourth year at my current job. It was a big change for me because I packed up and moved away from my hometown. It was the best decision of my life. I know this is going to work out for you, too.

    Why not follow some advice that's been given before. Join some activities on campus. I am certain there are some clubs that pertain to your major.

    Also, look for some places you can volunteer. That will gradually start getting you connected with people.

    If you have the time, you could also look at finding an internship or apprenticeship. Get a leg up on networking for your career field.

    You are awesome and you are going to be great at whatever you do! Give it a little time. In all honesty, it usually takes about a year to get fully settled. And New York is huge! It maybe take longer. lol...

    If you are really feeling lonely, you are always welcome to hop on RJ and message me.

    Big Hugs.
