Real Talk @ Friends is an evening for prospective families who identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC), to engage in conversation and refreshments with current BIPOC-identified students, parents, faculty and alumni of Friends.  The program will include a brief student panel moderated by an alum, as well as allow time for prospective families to speak directly with members of our community on their experiences at Friends. We ask that all guests show proof of vaccination when they arrive for the event and to wear a mask while on campus.
