hey, how are ya? what you been upto? always make sure you ask questions about them and allow them to talk. talking eases tension, so make sure you talk less than they do and avoid yes/no answer, questions.
When I was in college, the most common question we would ask was: "What are you majoring in?"
Don't get into their personal life too soon. Just say, "what's up?" and ask them what they like to do or what their favorite show is. People love talking about themselves; we just think we're really amazing.
sometimes in school I'll just ask what they are doing if you don't know...or say I know this is random but.....anything really after that lol that's what I always seem to say to my crush! ask if he's going to a game coming up....ask what he got for a question or what he's writing about in writing class
Here's a nice trick to try. Pick a topic that you are very sure of, and ask the person of interest what what he/she thinks. This way you know what answer to expect, and allows you to be comfortable during the conversation.
A question is one of the best conversation starters. An open ended question not a yes/ no question. Also , its important that you listen to the answer as even the best conversation starter cannot make a conversation keep going if you do not listen to what the other person says and vice versa (Philippians 2:4) .

Well, you want to ask him some questions about himself. Don't go blabbing about how you got your nails done on Saturday at 3 PM sharp. You DO NOT want to seem like an arrogant jackass (not saying you are). Compliment him! Act nice with him! Be yourself. Don't try to be who you're not. Go with the flow and hopefully, things will work itself out :)
Talk about a teacher, or even something that that person could relate to or what they could be interested in (sports,events,birthdays,parties,ect.), because lets face it, that's sorta what a conversation is.
