Nod: An App to Build Social Connections

As the world continues to cope with the challenges of COVID-19, we know that forming and maintaining social connections is more challenging than ever, and in spite of this fact, remains a core component of the student experience. It's what makes St. John's, St. John's.

With that, Student Government, Inc. is proud to announce Nod, a research-backed app for students that taps into positive psychology and the science of social connections to help you build the friendships you want and need. Nod is not a social media app, but is all about helping you achieve your social goals in real life. In student words, “Nod allows me to think of ways to interact with people that I probably wouldn’t have thought of on my own. It opens more opportunities for me.”
