Fast Friends

Making friends at Uni can be daunting, especially when it comes to making connections outside your program. Never fear, the Library is here! Fast Friends, our speed meet and greet activity, is an opportunity to make some friends and get a free feed at the same time.

We’ll be playing a few games, trivia-style, to help you get to know people and make new friends from different degrees and backgrounds. The activities will be followed by a free pizza lunch.

  • Callaghan (Room L326, Auchmuty Library) 2:30pm to 1:30pm
