you've got a friend in me
Going to a new conference can be overwhelming and lonely if you don't know anyone yet! This is the second year of the CAV Buddy System, which will pair new students with older students. The older students can help introduce younger students to the field and community. Our goal is to pair new CAV participants with more experienced students in the field. We are in the process of making the pairings. There are no formal requirements. Once you are assigned a buddy, just start a conversation with each other over email so you both have someone to hang out with when you arrive.
If you feel like being an awesome CAV buddy for another student, please fill out the sheet below. If you cannot participate in the program this year, please let us know. We have made preliminary pairings, and we don't want to pair you with someone if you are not able.
