Description

"Transition to college is challenging for many students. New Student Orientations, First-Year Seminars,

Living-Learning Communities and other initiatives are designed to support students during this time but

sometimes transfer students are left out of the process. This session will review findings from a recent

mixed-methods study designed to better understand how transfer students perceived their academic

transition into a new institution. Intended audience: those with a novice to intermediate understanding of

the transfer student experience. Takeaways: ideas and resources to create programming on other

campuses."
