Virtual Connections with a Quarantine Pen Pal

Created by a team of Cornell University students, Quarantine Buddy (qbuddy) links isolated students with a “pen pal” to remotely socialize with based on self-reported interests. Users answer a few questions about themselves, and the hosts match them to other people to talk to, either online or by phone. Besides one-on-one interactions, the site holds weekly online events for groups of users. The founders of qbuddy are passionate about connecting and empowering people as they go through this uncertain and difficult time together. Their hope is to connect people of all ages from around the globe to bring the world together.
