Before our class session, please watch the video below for an overview of the subject matter we will be discussing, and familiarize yourself with the background materials linked below.

Reading Material



  • Continue offering 3 sincere compliments to strangers daily.
  • From the third article (Twenty-five Fun Weekend Activities for College Students), pick one you could do with two other people. Then invite two casual friends to do the activity with you and introduce them to each other.
  • Ask two or three acquaintances or casual friends what interesting activities or events they are doing in the next month that are open to the public.

Cohort Discussion

Think about when you've had the most fun in a small group setting. Share your favorite event or two with your cohort and identify commonalities between everyone's events. Use the results to brainstorm at least two new high-quality activities you could do with friends.


Make a list of the people you know as acquaintances, casual friends, and friends. For each person, write a few sentences describing what they're interested in and what their problems are. If anyone's interest can solve another person's problem, connect through through DMs.
