New Friends

Text reads IEC Summer Socials, has decorative flourishes

We know that it is really hard to meet people at UTM this year. Online classes and online student life means that you don't have the regular ways of chatting with people before or after class, meeting up for lunch, or talking to someone at an event. One of the most common struggles we are hearing from students this year is that it is really hard to make friends. If you feel this way, you are not alone!

We want to try and connect people so that you can make some new friends. If you want to meet other UTM students, complete this form and we'll look to match you with a few other students based on what you tell us is important to you. We may not be able to find a perfect match, but we'll try our best to see that you have at least something in common. The more you tell us, the more matching we can do! Once we provide you with your matches, it will be up to you to reach out and chat. You can do this through any format/platform of your choice, and we'll even provide a few suggestions for conversation starters. 

Take a chance and start talking to another UTM student. They just might be your new friend.

New Friends is also an opportunity to participate in online socials with other students. Information will be updated below for each term. All times listed are in Eastern Time.
