“Talk To Me” Program

Talk to Me Banner

Talk to Me

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, promotes reflection around social media usage, helps to build social skills, and offers support and resources.

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

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

In-Person Talk to Me Buttons: 

Wearing a Talk to Me button means you want to meet more people on campus,  and you are okay if people you don't know start a conversation with you. 

Talk to Me buttons are a way of helping us connect to one another and starting a conversation!

Connect with us in person at one of our events to get your own Talk to Me Button.

Virtual Talk to Me Button:

If you aren't on campus in person, you can also 'wear' a virtual Talk to Me button. 

Using a virtual Talk to Me button means 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!

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 lets 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!
