Meet Our Mentors

The Local Commuter Mentor Program (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!
