How can I meet people and make friends while studying?

Question:

How can I meet people and make friends while studying?

Answer:

Students have access to many student groups and clubs, which are a great way to meet people and make friends with other students who have the same interests as you.

There are student groups for social, sport, cultural, religious, spiritual, political, arts, performance, faculty and professional interests. You can connect and join groups online at MacSync, or meet them at the start of sessions 1 and 2 during Orientation Week.

You've also got an instant friend in your Macquarie University Mentor - a more experienced student who'll introduce you to your peer group and give you helpful tips on meeting people at uni.
