Valentine’s Day may be over, but love could still be in the air. The Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity is hosting a speed dating event called Matchmaker on Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 7:11 p.m. in the Hillwood Commons Fishbowl.
“What’s in store is for everyone to have fun, make new friends, relationships, bonds and they should be walking away with just that,” Jahrid Barker, a senior digital arts and design major and polemarch of Kappa Alpha Psi, said. “We decided to do [Matchmaker] because nobody’s done it before and it’s a new look [and] feel to the campus.”
Matchmaker will be run in a style that allows for participants to create their own questions. “It’s going to be run like traditional speed dating in the sense that people will be lined up across from each other and they will have between four to six minutes to speak to the other person and get to know them,” Michael Bruny, a senior business sports management major and a member of Kappa Alpha Psi said “Each person will create their own questions based on what they want to know.”
The event is free and Kappa Alpha Psi encourages all students to participate, have fun, and walk away with a new bond.
