ConnectYou is for You!
Adaptation to University life can be emotionally and physically challenging for students. Loneliness and fear are two prevailing emotions during that period. Establishing social connections with others will benefit students and their psychological well-being. Therefore, ConnectYou is aimed to connect students based on shared interests and hobbies to facilitate decrease in social isolation and loneliness. We know that tet-a-tet communication can feel like pressure, so we created an online platform which accommodates different communication styles and provides opportunities for easy and friendly communication.
The channel hosts interviews and talks with the guest speakers to keep students informed about what is going on in students’ lives, what TRULY happens and how to better handle stressful times.
A group of four undergraduate and postgraduate students at the University of Bath and Newcastle University have collaborated to bring this project to life. Please read more about the founders and those helping to create ConnectYou platform in ConnectUs section.
