How to Become Popular at University
Olya Bezvushko

Most students have a desire to be popular during their university years.. They want everyone to know them and to like them. According to this point of view, the first year at college is very important as it determines what type of student you will be. You can become well known on campus due to making new acquaintances with other college students and professors. Besides becoming popular, consider living others with a positive impression after meeting you. Believe me, you will never become popular by drinking and smoking weed. There is no need to be a “bad guy” in order to be popular. You should earn respect for yourself.  Key points of popularity:

     - Friendliness. Be polite with everybody around. You cannot allow yourself to be rude with people in case you want them to be nice to you, no matter who they are. It is enough to make one bad impression to ruin the foundations of trust to you. People are attracted to smiling and positive individuals, so it doesn’t matter how down you get try to smile to others and greet them.

There are numerous activities in all colleges and you should attend as many as possible. Join clubs and organizations as it will help you to meet new people.
