Spend Less Time Indoors

Living in a new country can lead to multiple first time experiences, your not going to make friends by staying in your room all day. Look for events that are happening around the area, visit the local exhibits.The best part of university life is meeting new people and getting to work along side with them, whether its being part of a study group or a volunteer program. Group activities bring people closer together, use this as an opportunity to get to know your class mates better.
