Seeking friends

Posted by Angel Diaz @angeldiaz, Sep 1, 2018

Hello everyone!

My name is Angel and I recently graduated from college. I am moving to Rochester on September 10th and will be at orientation on the 24th. I am looking to make friends with other recent graduates and was wondering if anyone else is in a similar situation. Moving in will be a quick process for me, so I will be available to help with moving should there be a need for an extra hand! I enjoy strength training, cycling, and trying out local eats. I also recently got into spikeball, so if anyone would be interested in playing, let me know! Is anyone else concerned about trying to make friends in a new place?

Hi Angel! I am also new in Rochester and would not mind some new friends. I am a medical student from Denmark who will be in Rochester for 11 months as a research trainee. I am up for all kinds of sports so let me know if you need an extra for spike ball.
I will also be at the orientation on the 24th but am first arriving on the 20th.

Hey Angel, this is a great idea! I also just moved to Rochester and have been looking to make friends before I start orientation!

Hi Angel, my name is Margo Predum and I also am a recent graduate and am looking to make new friends. I moved to Rochester a week ago from Michigan. I have two roommates who are also in my same situation and we are all looking to meet new people. I enjoy being active and am a huge fan of spikeball. I hope your move goes well!

Hey Angel & other new employees, my name is Josh and I’m also a new grad relocating to Rochester! I’m coming from Pennsylvania and will be at orientation on October 24th as well. I love being active and definitely wanna explore Rochester and the surrounding areas with some good friends. Feel free to reach out if you want to connect!

Hi everyone! My name is Analiese and I would love to organize a little get together with everyone who has reached out through this post. I also noticed there is a similar discussion occurring under "Friends" so I will be posting in there as well. For people who have posted their phone numbers I was thinking of starting a group text to find some dates that work for most, but if your number is not posted please feel free to private message me to get in on the plans 🙂

I am new to Rochester too! I will most likely be starting October 8th, and moving around that date as well. I like playing music (I'm a violinist) and running and salsa dancing!
