Making Friends

Making friends is what Welcome Week is all about! And whether you're here in person or learning online we have plenty of ways to help you meet new people.


Get matched with different people to chat for a few minutes then switch! It's a great way to meet a lot of new people and we've got fun games to help break the ice :)

We also have dedicated events for liberation communities.
