So how do you become “popular” in college? How do you get into the “scene?”
If you want to be the center of the social scene in college, the way forward is pretty straightforward. If you don’t want to cultivate a chill, fun personality, you can get pretty much whatever you want if you provide at least one of three things: hot girls, booze or a place to party.
If you roll out with hot girls (Or are a hot girl), just about every party will open its doors for you. It’s amazing how quickly a “full” party will suddenly have some space once some hot girls arrive. You can hate on this reality, or you can make it work for you.
Like all human beings, hot girls like to be around fun people. So, to get hot girls to roll with you, offer them a good time.
What does this mean? Be a fun, chill person and become the center of their social lives by knowing what’s happening around town. If you can go up and say “hey, I know this great party on Friday night, you and your friends should tag along with us,” you will be much more effective than someone who’s all like “ummmm… want to hang out?”
Another option is to provide alcohol or be able to direct people towards it. The majority of college students drink. Most college parties revolve around alcohol, so if you are the one providing it, then you will gain massive social value.
The third option is to provide a house, party, club, apartment, etc to party. If can host some awesome parties, you will gain massive social value. If you repeatedly host awesome parties (Say on a weekly basis) to the point where others become dependent on you for their weekend fun, then you will become very popular.
This might all seem pretty superficial. However, working one or more of those options is the easiest way to be the center of the social scene.
That said, smart networking can also take you far in the social scene. You can use networking to gain access to hot girls, booze and party places. You can do things like befriend fraternity members who can get you and others into exclusive parties, make friends with club owners or just go and meet people during the day so you have more people to invite to parties.
Remember that as effective as all of these approaches are, the best approach is to just be a fun, chill person to hang out with. At the very least, it will make this stuff work better.
