post tips on meeting people in your classes! esp for 1st years!
a good ice breaker i use is for the very first day of lecture/tutorials; though might work for the first few lectures...
find a person that looks 'interesting' to talk to (ie. the most attractive person who you'd think would have the slightest interest of talking to you ), then go "excuse me, is this the lecture for econ 105?" or whatever class it is supposed to be for.
when they reply yes, use your imagination, and go from there. i usually go like "oh whew, cool... its so confusing here! lucky i found my way to the lecture hall!"
works only once in tutorial, coz tutorials are small, they'll probbaly notice you the first class. lectures you can use for the first week or two.
corny, maybe... but it works for me!
post your tips/tricks!
