The Buddy project  was created to offer the incoming students of the university of Bolzano an immediate, personalized and complete tutoring service.
The project, assigning to each incoming student a qualified tutor (between the volunteers of ESN and every students of the University who decides to help out), aims to:
- welcome incoming students upon arrival in Bolzano;
- to help incoming students in carrying out the first bureaucratic procedures;
- assist incoming students throughout their studies at the host faculties, removing obstacles for a profitable attendance of courses and promoting effective integration into the local university system;
- helping incoming students to integrate into the local community.
The realization of the project involves the assignment to each Student Mentor of an Erasmus student, or the assignment to each Student Mentor of a group of Erasmus with homogeneous experiences.
The Buddy System service is offered to Erasmus students in the first and second semesters.
