CampusCouches on College Green by the Main Registration Tent

Drawing inspiration from the New York City’s FreeConvo movement, the CampusCouches campaign sets up sofas at various locations around Penn’s campus. Any passersby is invited to spend time on the furniture and engage with each other in conversation. The purpose is simple: Have an informal conversation with someone you haven’t met before, with no agenda in mind. Facilitators are present at each set of CampusCouches location to answer all and any questions about the TableTalk organization and to help make conversation. Come meet someone new!
