BCLC Buddy

Be a BCLC Buddy!

BCLC Buddies is a mentor/mentee program put in place to aid BCLC Freshmen in their transition from high school to college. The BCLC would like to help make this transition as smooth as possible by pairing each Freshman student with a Sophomore buddy who spent his or her Freshman year living in the BCLC. The Sophomores have the knowledge to provide the Freshmen with information about how to adapt to college life, academics, and the greater UConn Community.

Freshman and Sophomore Buddies will:

  • Be in contact before move-in day to ask/answer questions
  • Tour the campus before classes start to ensure the freshmen know where classes will be held.
  • Attend BCLC social and business events together


The Freshmen and Sophomores are matched based on their responses to questions related to major, interests, and personality.
