On your first day of college, when making your self introduction speech in front of your new class, you want to convey a positive and confident personality. Making a good self introduction speech can be the key to making a group of new friends, as it is when your classmates will get their first impression of you. First impressions often stick, which is why it's important to appear friendly and approachable. Avoid being too shy, too pompous or sarcastic. In addition, try not to be over confident, as you want to display an edge of vulnerability to encourage people to talk to you on your first day.
