Penn State’s Center For Sexual And Gender Diversity Launches Pen Pal Program

The Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity (CSGD) is giving Penn State students the opportunity to make some new friends and stay connected while away from campus.

The department launched a new pen pal program to help like-minded students communicate while isolated at home and hopefully make Penn State’s remote learning period a bit easier.

To get started, students are encouraged to fill out a Google form that will match them with a like-minded pen pal. You’ll be asked to answer questions relating to sexual identity and gender, age, hobbies, academic majors and minors, and whether you’d like to communicate digitally or the ol’ fashioned way (read: snail-mail).

This can be a lonely time for a lot of students who are stuck in their houses social distancing all day, so having a pen pal to communicate with can be a great way to cure the boredom that remote learning and quarantine bring.

With all the time that’s (probably) on your hands, who knows where a pen pal might take you. Maybe you’ll find a new roomie, best friend, or future cornhole partner.
