Rutgers Global Friendship Fridays


Friendship Fridays are a weekly event open to all Rutgers students, both domestic and international, from 4:00-5:00pm.  Each week there will be a different theme where attendees can enjoy games, activities, and conversation - all while making new friends from around the world.  

For other programs and events organized by Rutgers Global, see our event calendar.

September 16 – Speedfriending


Location: 30 College Ave

This week, join us to meet other Rutgers students at our Speed Friending event.  Each attendee will quickly introduce themselves to one other person, sharing a little something about themselves and learning about their partner too, before moving on to the next person.  You'll be amazed at how many people you meet in a short amount of time!  This is a great way to kick off the new semester. 

** In case of rain, this event will be held in the Red Lion Café of the College Avenue Student Center (bottom floor).  Please RSVP to stay updated.
