Big Sis/Lil Sis

Welcome to the Big Sis/Lil Sis Program!

Dink Donut NightAs early as 1926, the Big Sis Lil Sis program has been a beloved tradition at Cedar Crest College. This program has long-standing success in helping first year students adjust to the challenges of college life.  The program combines social events, educational opportunities, and chances for first year students to join in with the traditions that make Cedar Crest unique. 

Big Sisters have a chance to join the program during the Spring semester and littles can sign up during their Summer Orientation visit (or by visiting My.CedarCrest). During the summer, the Big Sis Lil Sis Committee will pair incoming first-year students (littles) with returning, upperclass students (bigs).  They will send you contact information for your respective big or little and you should get in touch with them before coming to campus in August. This will be an opportunity for you and your sis to get to know each other and for littles to ask any questions they may have.   It is a duty as well as a privilege for the Big Sister to help her Little adjust to college life.  It’s not uncommon to have questions that only another student from Cedar Crest can answer for you, a Big sis is the perfect solution!
