Join us for International Speed Friending! Whether you’re an international student at Pitt looking to make American friends in Pittsburgh or a native speaker of English interested in meeting people from different cultures, this FREE event hosted by the English Language Institute 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. Check in and mingling will take place from 4:00 to 4:15 followed by structured time for short one-on-one conversations from 4:15 to 5:15. Refreshments will be served. Advance registration is required.

You might also be interested in our Virtual Speed Friending event on Oct. 7! Sign up for one or sign up for both and celebrate International Week at Pitt with the start of new cross-cultural friendships!
