The Buddy Initiative: Submission Form

August 22, 2021 - September 19, 2021
12:00 AM - 11:55 PM

This vibrant new networking program matches current University Life Ambassadors with new and/or returning students, creating connections through events and the online community. New or returning, all students are welcome to participate. If you're interested in the Buddy Initiative, you can SIGN UP HERE.

Deadline to sign up is Sunday, September 19, 2021. After you register, you will receive a confirmation email with details and instructions within a week. 

The program will also allow a community of fellow Lions to interact, share anecdotes about their lives or favorite campus memories, and use a small piece of campus to unite the different lives we all lead.

University Life Ambassadors are student leaders who care about building community, sexual respect, student wellness and inclusion & belonging at Columbia University. Participants can message their ambassador, ask questions, find others with their similar interests and much more.
