Program Description

BITSA Buddies is a unique program offering one-on-one/one-on-two peer mentoring session with an older Information Systems Student. Mentees are paired with a handpicked mentor and will have flexible sessions as well as exciting group activities throughout the semester. In the past, the program has run day-hikes and rock-climbing sessions. This program is a great way to meet some of the amazing older students within the Information Systems community.
