With so many face-to-face events being cancelled in the wake of the Coronavirus, it is even harder to create meaningful relationships with others, including fellow Notre Dame alums. How can we create these connections while maintaining physical distance? The Office of Alumnae and Alumni Relations is here to help.
Introducing Gab with Gators!
Here’s how it works:
- If you would like to participate in the program, simply complete this online form.
- Once your form has been received, the staff will pair you with a fellow Gator based on your chosen criteria in one of three categories. These include your preferred region, whether or not you would like to speak with someone who graduated in the same decade, and whether you would like to talk with someone who graduated more recently or earlier than yourself. *
- Once a match has been formed, you and your fellow Gator will receive an introductory email inviting the two of you to connect. **
- Once you and your fellow Gator connect, it will be up to you to continue the conversation. If you would like to be matched again to a new Gator, please reach out to the office staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*The ability of the staff to pair you with a fellow Gator on your preferred criteria will depend upon the breadth of the pool available.
**Though it will be up to you and your partner to decide on a time to talk and the mode of connection, we recommend phone calls or video chats using the provider of your choosing.
