SCOPE Tip of the Week

Will you be my friend?

Colleges and universities offer courses in math, science, ethics and history. They offer guidance on how to study, how to balance a checkbook and the importance of developing critical thinking skills. However, there isn’t a guidebook on how to develop friendships on campus. Students are expected to “learn the ropes” in terms of making friends primarily on their own.

For more on developing friendships, please view our full Tip of the Week here.
