How to Break Out of Your Shell in College

Unknown-1

If you are trying to adjust to college but are also an introvert, you have a complicated combination. Now is the time to break your boundaries and get involved!

I was shy my freshman year of high school. I wasn’t involved in any sports or clubs, and I kept to all the same friends that I had comfortably grown up with. What my 14-year-old self could not have predicted was that I would make so many more friends from different schools, or that I would get involved with more clubs than I could sometimes handle come senior year. My freshman year of college was different. It didn’t take me four years to break out of my shell. I immediately got involved by making an effort to get to know people and interact with the faculty. Maybe I had an advantage being at a small college, but it was still mind over matter. It is not the easiest task for an introvert to complete, but these tips will give you a head start to escape your comfort zone and grow socially and academically. It all begins with freshman year.
