just worry about seeing their socials page (ig, fb etc), that's where you'll get notified of their events

I'd do a bit of both, dependent on the class

also, one thing I would do if I were you, introduce yourself to people ... start that conversation. More often than not, you will have to initiate it

Sit next to someone who’s alone, people already in a group usually won’t talk to you as much

my advice from experience take university seriously, do not settle for an average wam it's just not good enough set the bar higher and you'll have more opportunities. attend all classes including lectures yes, it makes for a good habit to attend all your classes unless there's a clash or it's too overwhelming or ur sick or smth. another thing is that it's okay to fall behind don't beat yourself up about it however try to stay afloat if u know what I mean. lastly take care of yourself university isn't everything have a life outside of it, go to the gym, see friends, eat properly and sleep well 🌟🌟🌟
