BIG SISTER/LITTLE SISTER PROGRAM: The “Big Sister/Little Sister” program was begun twelve years ago in collaboration with the First Year Program. The purpose is to match First Year women-identified students (Little Sisters) with upper-year women-identified students (Big Sisters) to provide incoming first year women-identified students support, guidance and friendship during their transition to college. We hold the “Meet & Greet” on Labor Day at First Year Orientation. Last year we matched over 70 First Years with Big Sisters! That’s a lot of smiling faces. 🙂
If you are a First-Year woman-identified student who’d like a Big Sister, please complete the online application no later than June 30, 2020. If you are interested in becoming a Big Sister, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.

MASCULINITY PROJECT: Male identified students explore and redefine masculinity so that it includes healthier and more inclusive definitions that allow for greater expressions of what it means to be a man on campus and in society. The group sponsored a program on positive masculinity as well as premiering “Walk A Mile In Her Shoes” to express solidarity and support for survivors of sexual and relationship violence.
