“The roundtable discussions organized by the Singles Connection enables singles to broaden their horizons on various topics relating to the dating scene in a relaxed atmosphere,” explained Hannah Farkas, Program Associate, OU Community Engagement. “This particular topic is a crucial component of what it means to communicate and what medium to use throughout the dating process. This is our third annual roundtable and I am looking forward to the engaging dialogue that always comes about in these programs.”
