We acknowledge that making new friends in a new environment, can be awkward and challenging some of the times.

As members of the Southend Essex SU, we try harder at breaking down the barriers to social interactions as we possibly can. Our speed-friending event offers a comfortable platform and a great way to meet other new students of Essex.
