What we’ve done so far:

  • Improved Transfer Orientation so that transfers have their own groups, programming, and lectures that are geared towards returning, rather than new, students

  • Hosted the largest and most successful-ever Admitted Transfer Students Day, which had campus tours, student and administrator panels, and a student club open house

  • Supported the continued development and improvement of the new Transfer Living and Learning Community in the Southwest Quad

  • Created a new transfer association to ensure that all transfer students have an automatic club on campus to assist with social integration on the Hilltop

  • Planned new programming for spring transfer admits that will include a longer orientation as well as organized meetings with transfer mentors

  • Planned transfer lunch meetings with Dr. Todd Olson to continue conversations with the Division of Student Affairs on transfer resources

What we’re prioritizing for the rest of our term:

  • Working with The Corp to set up free coffee chats between returning students and transfer students

  • Working with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions on reasonable timelines for transfer acceptance letters and wait list decision notifications
