Meet the Mentors!
The LCM program is a brand new program designed to aid local students in having a successful transition to Binghamton University. Each incoming local freshman/transfer student will be paired with one of the mentors below who will be available to answer questions, show you around campus, act as a friendly face, and serve as a resource for you as a new student!
Each LCM has office hours in the Local Student Lounge (UUW-209) each week. Stop by anytime, and let them know if you need anything!

I wanted to be part of the Local Commuter Mentor program because I think it is a great way for local students to form lasting connections and friendships and it allows them to be part of an established community of people, the same way that living in a dorm connects students to each other.

I wanted to be a part of the new student support system at BU to give new local commuters someone to talk to and get advice from who has already been in their shoes... something I lacked during my first year.

There are certain benefits and challenges to being a local commuter, and I want to help illuminate those benefits and assist with those challenges by sharing my experiences and cementing myself as the first stepping stone to a pathway of new friends from all over the world.
