International Speed Friending

This is a past event.

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

If you’ve ever heard of “Speed Dating,” this is similar. The only difference is that the objective here is to make friends. During this activity, international students will be paired with a native speaker of English and get to talk for 5-7 minutes. After that time, the native speaker of English will be instructed to move to another group. At the end of the hour, you'll have had the opportunity to talk with 6-8 people... and hopefully make a new friend.  There will be snacks and door prizes, too!

Space is limited, so advance registration is requested by 1:00 pm on February 20, Late registration will be accepted until all seats are filled. 

Tuesday, February 21 at 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
