CLAS Buddies

Entering University and starting a new program can be an exciting time, but it can also be awkward. That is why incoming Classics students are paired with CLAS Buddies, senior students in our program who have volunteered to help with introductions to the Classics community and life at Brock.

Being a CLAS Buddy is an informal and flexible role for students who are willing to:

  • answer questions about life at Brock and St. Catharines
  • share their experience with program courses events and opportunities
  • be a familiar face at department talks and social events

If you think you’d like to be part of the CLAS Buddy initiative, contact the Undergraduate Program Officer.
