What our community says.

My name is Samia D. and I am a member of the UCF chapter of BSLS. BSLS is more than just an organization. This is a sisterhood. I have learned so much about myself while in this organization. I was very shy when I first started, now I'm more out of my shell and open to meeting and talking to new people. I'm more than elated that I've joined this sisterhood!

"My name is Sheila S. I am a second-year finance major at Florida State University. I joined Big Sister Little Sister Mentoring Program my second semester as a freshman. I sought out BSLS because I wanted to be a part of an organization that was going to make me feel at home even though I was hundreds of miles away from it. This organization has been everything that it has stated itself to be and MORE. Before I was even a member, all of the current members were so welcoming and accepting of who I was and what I stood for. With the presence of BSLS, I have been able to build numerous connections with sisters while also interacting with the Tallahassee community. I have been able to laugh and cry about my journey here in college and I've had a group of women ready and willing to be there for me. For that, I am and will always be grateful for BSLS as a whole."

"Big Sister, Little Sister was more than just an org to me! It gave me the opportunity to meet some of the most kind-hearted women on Michigan State's campus. It was always good vibes. We were able to create a safe space for women to share their goals, fears, and feelings all while constantly uplifting them. From volunteering to tailgates, to bus rides around campus you could easily find a fellow sister to keep you company. I proudly served on the E-board during my time at Michigan State. For a fact I know that through any obstacle BSLS is here to stay."
