FAQs

Who can participate in Future Friends? This program is open to all undergraduate students, including remote learners, on-campus students, first-years, sophomores, juniors, and seniors! 

What happens after I am matched? That is up to you! We encourage our Future Friends to connect in whichever way is most comfortable for both of you, whether that is over the phone, through text, social media, or Zoom. We will share ideas for ways you and your new friend can connect, but it is up to you to reach out, take time, and say hi.

Isn't that going to be super awkward? Yep! Making new friends is always awkward - but you aren't alone in being nervous or apprehensive. Reach out anyway, start a conversation anyway. A beautiful friendship might just be right on the other side.

What if I am matched with someone I already know? Reach out to us and we will match you with a new person!

Can I match with multiple people? Yes! There is a question on the form that asks if you are willing to be matched with multiple people. If you say no, but later change your mind, just let us know.

I filled out the survey but haven't been matched yet. What's wrong? Review the calendar above to see when you should expect your match email. Most likely, we are working on finding a great match and will connect with you soon! If you're still unsure, just reach out to us at orientation@tulane.edu!
