Live events are divided into "booths" based on industry or discussion topic. After joining a booth, you will be paired with other Villanovans in text-based, timed conversations that allow you to make many connections over a short period of time. Events typically last an hour, and you will be matched with a new person every 8-10 minutes.  

Some good questions you can ask to start the conversation include:

  • What did you study?
  • What do you do professionally?
  • What do you love most about where you live/work?
  • Can I ask for your advice on ____?
  • What's your favorite memory from campus?
  • If you could do one thing differently in your career, what would it be?
  • What's the best piece of advice you received during your college career?
