If you went to school in the same area growing up, chances are your high school peers have been with you since kindergarten. The end of high school can sometimes mark the end of an era. You and your high school friends may part ways as you begin your individual journeys into adulthood. However, just because you don’t end up going to the same college as your high school friends doesn’t mean you can’t remain as close as you were before as you stay in touch using these tips.

1. Use social media

This is by far one of the easiest ways to keep up with people you haven’t seen in a while. Social media apps like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are perfect for getting a glimpse into what’s new with your old friends. Take the time to comment on pictures and message your friends to stay connected.

2. Make plans to see each other

It takes effort to make a friendship work when you’re no longer seeing each other every day at school. Make plans to come visit each other at your universities or reunite during summer vacation. If you’re both in your hometown for the summer, make time to catch up.

3. Call or text each other

Check in on each other occasionally, whether it’s via text or an hour-long phone call where you reminisce about funny high school memories. Chances are you’re already on your phone, so you might as well use it to communicate with the people you care about.

4. Keep up with birthdays

It can be challenging to keep up with birthdays, but that’s what Facebook and calendars are for! Even if you aren’t as close as you once were with your high school friends, stopping in with a birthday message is a great way to find out how they’re doing.
