“Talk To Me” Program

Talk to Me Banner

“Providing opportunities that support social connection and belonging among students”

This is not just a group but also a campaign; a campaign to create a more connected VIU campus culture!

The Talk to Me program is designed to create connections among VIU students, to increase students’ sense of belonging and decrease feelings of loneliness. The Talk to Me team puts on events, hosts a Talk to Me lunch table, promotes reflection around social media usage, helps to build social skills, and offers support and resources.

Talk to Me...have a conversation, meet new people and build connections!

Get Involved:

To get involved come out to one of our events and meet our great student staff and awesome participants! Online Talk to Me events will begin again in September 2020; keep an eye on this webpage, our Facebook page, and the T2M group in the VIU CCR App for the latest info! Another great way to get involved is to 'wear' a virtual Talk to Me button - check out more info on this below!

Virtual Talk to Me Buttons:

When we are on campus in-person, we promote the program and the campaign by handing out Talk to Me Buttons. Wearing a Talk to Me button could mean...you want to meet more people on campus,  and you are okay if people you don't know start a conversation with you. During COVID-19, we are promoting 'virtual Talk to Me buttons'. 

While we are all social distancing, using a virtual Talk to Me button could mean that you are open to talking with students virtually. It is a way of letting others know you are interested in getting to know them and making connections on campus!

How does the virtual Talk to Me button work?

Copy or download our button logo here. Use the logo as your social media profile picture, set it as your zoom background, or as your profile picture in VIULearn. Using the Talk to Me button as your background or profile, let's your fellow students know you are interested in making new connections! And if you see someone else with a virtual Talk to Me button, feel free to connect with them!
