Freshmen at colleges across America have settled into their first few months of classes, and the expectation is that most of them have found their groove.
But for all the talk about college being a time to find your niche, not everyone feels the natural ease of fitting in right away.
Cornell University freshman Emery Bergmann tackled the issue in a video about the loneliness she has experienced in her first few months at the school.
“I’m a brand spanking new freshman in college,” she said at the start of the video. “I guess I just assumed that once I was at school that that was going to be it. I was going to have 1 million friends, I was going to just party all the time. But it’s just not really like that. I haven’t really found anyone I’m super close with.”
The video appears to have resonated with viewers, racking up nearly 90,000 views (as of Tuesday morning) on Youtube in less than two weeks. Many commenters said they relate to Bergmann’s feelings of loneliness.
