The Nod app gives college students ideas for growing and maintaining strong social lives while away from campus. Nod uses evidence-based practices including principles of positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness-based self-compassion. Nod reminds us of the small things we can do to create positive moments for ourselves and the people we care about.

“It’s tough to figure out how to be ‘social’ in this new reality. I downloaded Nod, and after going through the first two prompts, I already feel a little better. It’s not all going to be magically better, but I know I just have to take it step by step, day by day.”

Use the feedback button in the app to tell us what you think! We listen and make improvements to the app, tips, and tools based on your input!

#YouAreNodAlone! The perfect app for college students to fight loneliness during the pandemic

This is the app college students need right now!! Seriously, COVID may have pushed us off of campus but we can still connect. The helpful ideas here like writing a professor a thank you email or making a playlist with my friends so we can dance it out together makes me feel better every time I do one. I feel less alone. I feel happier. I feel free. Thank you Nod!!

Helpful tips during quarantine

The app has a lot of potential and good ideas to help you stay connected and not bored during quarantine. Thankfully with technology we have the ability to stay in connection even during isolation and this app helps to use that to our advantage

Soothing for my isolation

I am really enjoying using this. I use it before bed it gives me daily challenges that I can do or change my mind on later, and has a mood check and reflections that are nice and enjoyable. I think it has room to grow and develop more and i love the illustrations.
