Winter Orientation: Talking to New People Online for Incoming Grad Students

Jan 9, 2023 12:00 PM to 01:30 PM

Registration Deadline: Jan 9, 2023 12:05 PM

Do you find talking to new people difficult? Do your fears hold you back from making connections? Are you finding it hard to build meaningful connections in online environments? Talking and connecting with new people is a challenge that everyone faces (even for Graduate students) and we created this workshop to help you develop the skills you need to not only make new connections, but to manage the fear and anxiety that comes along with it. In this workshop, we will teach you how to make new connections during your graduate programs and you will practice these skills so that you'll leave with experience, and confidence that will help you continue talking to new people.  Facilitated by Jennifer Pinker, Coordinator Graduate Programs and the Gradlife Ambassador.
