A group of five college students in conversation

College should be seen as a great time of learning in a person’s life, whether it be in school or off-campus.

A good portion of this learning should come from making friends with students from all different walks of life and understanding their perspectives on the world.

However, college is a little bit different from high school, where you spend time with the same classmates for eight hours a day and five days a week.

Making friends, especially when you’re a freshman, can be very difficult. How do you get the conversation started? How do you fill in awkward silences?

Small talk is effective, but how do you begin to form a deeper connection? The best way to figure out if you and your potential friend have anything in common boils down to sharing the same favorite things.

With this list of two hundred “favorite” questions, which reflect on topics such as food, travel, and music, you can get to know anyone better!
