Being An Introvert In College

Without a doubt, attending college is one of the most stressful times for any student. For many, it is the last leg of the education triathlon and the barrier between you and the workforce. With that being the case, it is important not only to focus on your studies, but to make connections, memories, and have fun with fellow students.

But perhaps that’s not you. Perhaps you’re the kind of person who prefers the company of oneself, to stay at home and avoid interactions. Perhaps the word “introvert” suits you best. Clubs? “Who needs them.” Group work? “I’ll do it all myself.” Parties? “Not for me! I’m just gonna eat me a big ol’ bag of cheese balls!”

While this certainly is a way to get through college, it would mean taking on this journey alone, which can be pretty miserable. But, I’m not gonna sit here and lecture you on how to live your life, you do you. But for the people that may want to make a change and put themselves out there, let me give you some tips on how to do that and help you start enjoying college life as an introvert.
