My partner and I recently moved cross-country to attend a Ph.D. program in a city where I knew very few people. We each had a very active social life in our previous city but were still happy to make the move because of how much better the job market is here. It’s been almost a year and I find I’m still having trouble connecting with people inside and outside of my school. We have a few friends, most of whom we knew prior to moving, but it’s been an uphill battle to find people we like and can hang out with on a regular basis. How do we find our footing here, and how do we make some more lasting friendships?
