Welcome to Crimson Connect!

Crimson Connect is a student mentorship program that pairs students with two upperclassmen mentors (we call them SGLs – short for “small group leaders”). A joint effort between Orientation and Transfer Programs and the Graduation Office, Crimson Connect was created to help new students feel a sense of belonging and community at the University of Oklahoma. While we have primarily focused on incoming first-year students, Crimson Connect is also open to transfer students and upperclassmen.

Crimson Connect SGLs impact their students by providing support, guidance and encouragement. One of the hardest parts about coming to college is meeting new people and finding organizations or activities to participate in on campus. Crimson Connect SGLs help their students break down many of the common barriers that exist in a new environment.

Crimson Connect is always accepting new students who would like to find a connection on campus! It is never too late to fill out a survey and be matched with your very own small group and small group leaders.
