How to be the Best Big!


Bigs have BIG responsibility. You are there for your little for the ups and downs of college. Bigs are littles’ college mother figures, giving encouragement for dreaded finals week, wiping their tears after a harsh breakup, celebrating their successes, and advising them when important decisions arise.

Don’t be disappointed if you aren’t instant BFFs with your little. Your sorority chose them which means you probably have more in common than you think. Find a topic that you both are passionate about and keep building from there. Good friendships take a long time to create; be patient and keep showing her how much you care.

Treat your little with something thoughtful. A well-thought gift is worth way more than an expensive one. Find out what colors she likes, what her passions are, and some of her favorite foods! Find your inner craftiness and the nearest discount store and make the most out of the budget you have.
