GSA Speed Friending & Social Jam


May 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


Gryphon Gallery, 1888 Building, Grattan St, Parkville Campus



Make new connections with friends who will be with you throughout your time at the University of Melbourne.

Speed friending & Social Jam helps you meet and create wholesome connections with new people!

GSA’s Speed Friending meets Social Jam where you get to play connection-based games and get to know new friends in a fun way.

This means more fun, laughter and deeper conversations.

Enjoy creating genuine connections with other University of Melbourne grad students.

Whether you’re confidently social, or a bit shy and reserved, you’ll quickly warm up and make new friends.

And don’t fret, we provide ice-breaker questions on interesting topics which will make conversation a breeze. You’ll see how easy it is sharing stories, thoughts, ideas, and feelings as we play a variety of fun games in the Gryphon Gallery.


  • Meet students from your university
  • Expand your social network
  • Improve your social confidence
  • Have fun!



Bring a sense of adventure, curiosity and be ready to make new friends and connections!
