College is as much about getting a degree as it is about meeting new life-long friends. Students in college are usually open to meeting new people and can meet a lot of new people through nights out and various events that may be held within the college. The friends that you make in college are often pillars of support throughout the duration of your college life, they are there to keep you on track and to talk to whenever it is needed. I have made many new friends in college that I now consider close friends that I can depend on to tell me the truth about my performance in college and I can also seek advice from them if needed. Friends are what get you through college.
