Sign Up to be a Lil Sib
"No doubt, twenty years after I have left the farm, my strongest tie to Stanford is still rooted in my connection to the A³C."
What Is a Lil Sib?
A Lil Sib is a new student, usually a frosh or transfer student. Lil Sibs are interested in the various components of the Asian American community on campus and want to meet people who can expose them to new experiences.
What Are AASib Families?
AASib families (SibFams) are composed of up to four Big Sibs (upperclassmen) and at least one Lil Sib. SibFams are designed to help integrate incoming frosh and transfers into the Asian American community, and the undergraduate community at large, at Stanford. Being an incoming freshman can be daunting, and your SibFam is meant to help you transition through this exciting process.
Lil Sibs are matched with SibFams who have similar academic and social interests based on the application you submit. Depending on your SibFam, many may engage in different activities, like sporting activities, or trips off campus for Asian food, or maybe a night of watching movies in the dorm. AASib holds several annual events to help SibFams get together, such as social events with ice cream and a day of field games.
Interested in Becoming a Lil Sib?
The Online applications to be a Lil Sib is available for new Frosh and Transfer Students. Priority decision for Lil Sibs will be Friday, September 10, 2021 @11:59 PM PST.
Students will be matched with their Big Sibs/SibFams before the AASib Family Reveal event on Friday, September 24th as part of the Asian American New Student Orientation Committee (AANSOC) events after New Student Orientation (NSO).
If students miss the opportunity to apply by the September 10 deadline, we can still accept applications until Sunday, September 19th @11:59 PM PST and students would then be notified about a week after the final deadline with your matched Big Sibs/SibFams.
We encourage everyone to apply as Lil Sibs as early as possible to be best matched and to also join us in our AANSOC Community Welcome event to learn about the community and AANSOC Welcome to the Family event to meet your SibFam.
