BIG/LITTLE PROGRAM

The mission of our Big/Little Program is to provide support to the freshmen of FLEX  by allowing them to cultivate meaningful relationships with former freshmen.

Freshmen are put into "families" that are led by a pair of bigs and a grand big. Bigs create relationship-building opportunities for their freshmen. This gives freshmen a chance to interact with people outside of their zones. There are 18 "families" in FLEX.
