Did you know that when people start in a new program or a new incoming class, everyone tends to struggle with social belonging. Nobody feels they fit in at first, but this changes with time. Most people don't express that they don't feel belonging. Thankfully, by the years' end, when people stay in school or programs, they come to a place of feeling more inclusion.

The new classes don't fit in with what they find in their predominating surroundings. The ones who form close friendships with other struggling incoming students find shared belonging. Makes sense to me.
