About the Anchorage Program

The Anchorage Program pairs new and current students in the Undergraduate Studies to promote the success and involvement of all. It serves as an additional foundation and connection during the student experience. In line with the University's mission, the Anchorage Program will work toward creating a vibrant, community-oriented environment that provides support as you develop the skills and knowledge to become a leader who will transform lives. 

Each semester, the Anchorage Program hosts events to encourage support, advice, mentorship, and community, including a Reveal Party in September.

Little, Big, and Twin Sisters are paired based on: 

  • Interests
  • Area of Study
  • Activities
  • Class Year (i.e., Class of 2021)

Transfer students will be able to be paired with other “Big Sisters” and become a “Twin Big” so that they are involved and connected, both to their sister class and their graduating class.
