Big & Little Sisters Program
The Big and Little Sisters program is a mentoring program which matches first year women (Little Sisters) with upperclasswomen (Big Sisters) in order to ease the transition to college for freshwomen. Pairs are matched based on major, hobbies, hometown, and interest in extracurricular activities. Over the course of the year, matches attend monthly events with other pairs; previous events have included a trip to a food festival, an ice cream social, pottery painting, and a holiday party. Each Big Sister will be responsible for planning events and being available as a source of support for their Little Sister throughout the duration of the Little Sister's first year at Boston College.
The Women's Resource Center Staff is assisted in running the program by the Big and Little Sisters Program Advisory Council, a group of five women who are Big Sisters and have been involved in the program for at least one year. The Advisory Council helps in event-planning and general oversight of the program.
Applications for Big Sisters for the 2014-15 school year will open on Monday, March 10th, 2014, so check back soon for the link!
