AASIB is a voluntary student organization whose goal is to help incoming freshmen and transfer students smoothly transition into the Stanford community by exposing you to the various academic, extra-curricular, and social opportunities on campus. Our Big Sib/Lil' Sib Program matches you up with a sib family (or as we like to call them "sibfams"), which consists of about 4 lil' sibs and 5-7 big sibs. Sibfams are created based on similar academic interests, majors, activities, or personal pursuits. You don't have to be Asian to sign up and be part of a sibfam! Roles of Big Sibs
Big sibs serve as mentors and often best friends, who are there to guide you through your first year at Stanford. They can help you answer questions such as:

The AASIB program is an invaluable resource and such a great opportunity to meet upperclassmen, other freshmen and transfers, and dive right into Stanford life with sib family support behind you! If you have any questions/concerns please email any of the AASIB coordinators (our contact info is in the Staff tab). Sign up!
