Big Brother and Big Sister
The Big Brother and Big Sister initiative is to create a cohesion between the upperclassmen and the freshman. Though you will not be necessarily divided into majors, each freshman will be paired with an elder to assist them throughout the year. During freshman year, many social and collegiate mistakes are made. Most organizations cater to the collegiate aspect of this, However, personal decisions and social decisions could potentially hinder your collegiate experience. ASO would like to finally eradicate this problem by creating a network for students to avoid these potentially disastrous obstacles. Every ASO member is encouraged to sign up to be a big, as well as a little.
Thank you for all your support in helping The African Student Organization rise to be a major figure in Texas Tech University. We understand that as an organization, we must also focus on collegiate responsibilities. In order for the board to orchestrate workshops and skills labs that cater to your major, we must first have the information on your membership profile. In order for the board to coordinate functions and many activities; we must have funding from our members. Please respond to this email promptly, and help represent the black community.
