Speed Friending is a casual event designed to connect international students and domestic students at CU Boulder. The event promotes cultural literacy and positions the library as a place for students to create lasting connections.
During the event, students spend five minutes getting to know each other before rotating to new partners. At the end of the hourlong exercise, participants are free to exchange contact information and to continue socializing over pizza and soda. This event is part of an ongoing Culture Bridge program series, and two additional events are planned for spring 2017.
A university library offers speed dating with a twist to get international students acquainted.
