Speed Friending with UMSU

Without being on campus, it can be hard to make university friends!

Although, goodness knows, tutors try to get chats going in break out rooms, and lecturers drum up excitement around Canvas discussion boards, it can be hard to move past academic content and onto the fun stuff so you can really find your people!

The UMSU Host Program has got you! This year, Speed Friending is BACK (just this time on Zoom). A fail-safe way to quickly make friends and you don’t even need to leave your house!

Held within the loving embrace of some of UMSU’s autonomous departments (meaning departments run by and for students who identify as part of the community the Department represents) and their Arts and Media counterparts, this Zoom event will allow you to meet like-minded, friend-seeking students.

This is a great way to engage with UMSU and your university peers from wherever you are in the world! Whether this is your 1st year or your 4th, come along, find some pals! You never know who is out there waiting for you to meet them.

Come make some friends…FAST !  

Thanks for coming to 2021 Speed Friending with The Host Program! 

Stay in touch by following our Facebook and Instagram to see what other great events we have on throughout the year.
