Take the First Step: Say Hello

Drop in at Cameron Corner and Rutherford Galleria and say ‘Hello’ to ASSET and Unitea volunteers between 11 am and 1 pm to have a chat, play board games, and enjoy FREE treats among friends.

Social connection boosts our mental well-being, contributing to overall feelings of happiness, belonging, and feeling close to others. Despite knowing that social connection is good for us, we know that meeting new people can be challenging for a range of reasons, and sometimes it can be a low priority because life gets busy, especially during midterms. 

About World Hello Day

World Hello Day  – a global event with 180 countries taking part– was created in 1973 to respond to the conflict between Egypt and Israel. Using communication instead of force as a tool to promote peace, this day encourages each of us to say “hello” to ten people, be it an old friend or someone new. Extending a greeting is also one of the steps we can take to create and build social connections with others.
