BIG SISTER/LITTLE SISTER PROGRAM: The “Big Sister/Little Sister” program was begun 15 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 the First Year students support, guidance and friendship during their transition to college. We hold the “Meet & Greet” – virtual or in-person – at First Year Orientation. Last year we matched over 70 First Years with Big Sisters! That’s a lot of smiling faces. 🙂
Recruitment for Big and Little sisters occurs at the end of the Spring Semester and into the Summer.
