What is a Bronc Buddy?

The Bronc Buddy component of the Orientation Program was established to assist new students and their families with the transition into college. Bronc Buddies help new residents move into their assigned residence halls, escort new students to opening weekend events, and facilitate various activities for the new students. Bronc Buddies serve as liaisons to the new students through their first few days in the Rider Community.
