As an extension of their fan page, Transfer2NIU, the group provides a platform that will give admitted students the opportunity to connect with each other prior to coming to campus, ask questions of the Admissions Transfer Center staff and other offices, as well as receive regular updates and reminders about their next steps towards becoming Huskies.
“I’m very excited to be involved with getting our transfer students connected to one another before they get to campus,” said Katy Saalfeld, senior assistant director of transfer recruitment and administrator of the Facebook group. “It is also a great opportunity for them to connect with us as admission counselors. It is great to put faces with names and when I see them on campus for a visit, I often know who they are just because they are involved in the group.”
Transfer students that have been admitted to NIU will receive an e-mail invitation to join the group, and only students that have been admitted are able to join.
