Moving to a new apartment community is an exciting time. It can also be nerve-wracking when you don’t know many people or the answers to questions like, “Where is the best coffee shop?” But it doesn’t have to be! One of the major perks of moving to a new community is that you’re bound to meet new people. Check out our tips for meeting your new neighbors and connecting with them:
Introduce Yourself: Don’t be shy, say hello and smile! Introducing yourself as the new face next door or down the hall gives you the chance to make further conversation with your new neighbors. They can serve as a great resource going forward!
Get Involved: A great way to meet not just your immediate neighbors, but other residents too, is to get involved in the community! Participating in resident socials, planned activities, and developing a regular routine, such as using the fitness center, can help you meet more people and ease your initial jitters.
Ask Questions: Now that you’ve met your neighbors, get to know them! Ask them about themselves and their favorite things to do in the Blacksburg area. You might have something in common! You can also ask questions about the apartment community itself if you need help knowing where to go.
Ask Staff Members: The knowledgeable team members at your apartment community are always happy to help! They’ll be familiar with other residents as well as the area and can make recommendations of who you should meet. There may be someone else that’s also new to the community!
