This is an excellent opportunity for new transfer students to meet other transfer students, and become acquainted with the resources available to them.
A social event will take place in the New Orleans game room in Stevenson; child care services will be provided from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Stevenson Sunset Room.
“Coming in as a transfer student is not as easy of a transition one might think. The hardest part for me personally was making friends. I lived on a typically ‘freshman’ floor where I was significantly older than many of my neighbors, so I did not have as much in common with them,” said Jessica McKay, who is now a community adviser.
“Getting involved was the best decision I ever made. Joining organizations such as the Student Association and the Softball Club my first year here gave me the confidence to be able to be the leader I am today.”
The event is directed toward helping transfer students engage and network with other transfer students and connect with faculty/staff. It is is part of Post-Trad Appreciation Week and is sponsored by Housing & Dinning, the Latino Resource Center, Military & Post-Traditional Student Services and the Office of Student Academic Success.
