Newcomb Big Sisters/Little Sisters

Participate in one of the most popular Newcomb traditions! Every year, over 800 women choose to participate in the program. Bigs serve as a resource, a guide, and a friend as each first-year transitions to Tulane. Bigs are a helpful source of advice and insight throughout the semester, and there will be events for both Bigs and Littles to attend in order to get to know each other better.

The deadline to sign up for the program is Friday, July 20, 2018. Pairs will be matched by Wednesday, August 1, 2018 based on interests, majors, or any other factors you'd like us to consider. Bigs will contact Littles in early August. The annual Pinning Ceremony and meet-and-greet will be Sunday, August 26, 2018.

If you are a first-year student hoping to be matched with a Newcomb Big, please apply below.

If you are a sophomore, junior, or senior hoping to be matched with a Newcomb Little, please look at the expectations below. If you meet the requirements, apply below.
