Being a Student Buddy

Information for students at York who are interested in being a Student Buddy.

"Having a buddy gave me that extra bit of reassurance that all the feelings I had regarding university were totally normal. I knew that when I was getting really stressed out over seemingly silly things and needed advice my buddy was there as she had been through it all before."
