Alvina Lai, social life
The New School has many clubs that are involved with various majors so it would be a good time to learn things you need for school while meeting new people in clubs. For example, if you need help with illustration techniques, it would be good to join a club revolved around illustration or drawing. That way, you can meet new people and they can teach you what you need to know. Sports and clubs are not as big in The New School as they might be in other schools, and social life comes from spending time outside of class with other people so balancing social life and clubs will be a comfortable process.
