Making a Good Friend in NYC

posted by LIM College

New York City might not be the easiest place to form many meaningful relationships. Not because of the people, but rather the time and place. We don't have a traditional college campus and the flexibility of our schedule might also be a reason, as we can’t meet as often, especially if my friends and I don't have the same class. Our internship schedule plays a part in this as well.

Yet all this makes the friendships I have formed that much more sincere.

I met Maggie when I was still a freshman living in the residence hall. She lived on the same floor in a room just down the hall. Thinking back, it was College Algebra that really brought us together, if I remember correctly.

I wasn't naturally gifted in math, but Maggie was, and when I discovered how close our rooms were, I suggested I would pay her a visit for some extra help. Those mini-tutoring sessions turned into endless chats where we really bonded and became good friends. And now, after 3 years, we live just 10 blocks away from each other and those endless chats are still going on.
