SPEED FRIENDING – Get to meet your newest best friend, that will be with you throughout your time at the University of Melbourne.

About this event

Speed friending introduces you to new friends in a playful way.

Enjoy creating genuine connections with other Melbourne University grad students.

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

HOW IT WORKS

Meet other grad students as you participate in multiple rounds of face-to-face video chats.

You have plenty of time (approximately 8-10minutes per round) to chat in small groups, or one-on-one.

We provide ice-breaker questions on interesting topics which make conversation a breeze.

Feel how easy it is sharing stories, thoughts, ideas, and feelings as we play a variety of fun games in the online space.

KEEP IN TOUCH

Share your email address with new friends or join our online social group to stay connected after the event.

WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?
