International Speed Friending

Whether you’re an Pitt student who is a native speaker of English looking to meet people from different cultures or you’re an international student at Pitt looking to make friends with native speakers of English, this FREE event is perfect for you!

f you’ve ever heard of “Speed Dating,” this is similar. The only difference is that the objective here is to make friends!

Students will be seated across from each other (one native speaker of English and one international student) and have 5 minutes to talk with each other in English to see if they have similar interests or hobbies. After five minutes, a timer will go off and the students move on and talk with someone else.

Students will also have the opportunity to exchange contact information in case they want to keep in touch.

Refreshments will be served. 

You must pre-register in advance. 
Seating is very limited and is on a first come first served basis.
