Buddy Program

New to Cornell? Feeling a little uncertain or overwhelmed?

You will be connected with another “seasoned” student in the department who can assist with transition issues by answering questions, showing you around campus, helping you navigate Cornell processes, or just being a friend.

If you are a new incoming student and would like a buddy or are a DSOC major interested in becoming a buddy, please contact the Undergraduate Program Coordinator.
