Ask an Ambassador
At HUG, we know reaching out to a new organization or person can be intimidating, but our HUG Ambassadors do such a great job making new friends feel welcome and comfortable. We reached out and asked our ambassadors for some advice about how to connect with HUG and create lasting friendships. Follow their tips and you’re sure to be well-connected with a busy social calendar in no time. If you have any additional questions about how to connect, reach out to the HUG Team. We are here to help!
