The LCM program is a brand new program designed to aid local students in having a successful transition to Binghamton University. Each incoming local freshman will be paired with one of the mentors below who will be available to answer questions, show you around campus, act as a friendly face, and serve as a resource for you as a new student!
Each LCM has office hours in the Local Student Lounge (UUW-209) each week. Stop by anytime, and let them know if you need anything!

I wanted to be a part of the new student support system at BU to give new local commuters someone to talk to and get advice from who has already been in their shoes... something I lacked during my first year.
