A word from a Buddy...
"I signed up for the Buddy Program hoping to meet an upper classman who would take me under their wing. I found exactly what I was looking for. My buddy was very kind, caring and approachable. She would text me periodically to check up on me. Although not a tutor, she would look over my outlines and advised me to speak to a professor if something seemed out of place. She also texted me before and after finals to make sure I was okay. These are the type of amazing individuals who are involved in this program ."
