So everyone knows that cold approaching (daygame or nightgame) works, and there is typically nothing to lose by approaching that girl wherever you're at. This is because 1. you miss 100% of the shots you don't take 2. these people will likely never see you again and 3. even so, who cares what people think.
The question is this though: if you go to a smallish college (say, 5000 students), is it worth it to approach girls in the commons. I ask this because it seems likely that after 50-100 approaches, you will run into the same girls or will be recognized as "that guy" who hits on women on the quad (that is, point 2 above isn't true). Might it be better to exercise social circle game, and try to get to know the cute girls in the sororities and go from there. If so, the question becomes: how do you meet these girls if you are already a few years out of school.
Now this isn't exactly my own problem (I live in a mid-size city) but I remember living near a college campus and not being sure what to do. In the end, I just said "screw it" and approached everyone not caring if they recognized me or thought I was lame because I wasn't a student there. But I'm interested in hearing your guys' thoughts
