Bridging the transfer experience

Bridging the transfer experience

I had a transfer student stop by my office yesterday to just say hi and it totally made my day. I have the unique opportunity of developing relationships with prospective transfer students from across the nation and I become that friendly face once they arrive to the University of Illinois campus. I was a transfer student years ago, and I didn’t have that one person that I could contact for a school-related question (or even questions about Champaign-Urbana). Coming to the University of Illinois can be a bit frightening; it is a huge campus with more than 40,000 students. But having that one person to check in with makes all the difference. I am glad to be that person for hundreds of ACES transfer students every semester.
