“My transition into the university was great. I had this energy and drive to get super involved in clubs and organizations and had such a fun time. Eventually, I even became the transfer student coordinator! We have designated people who help transfer students have a seamless experience. Just because you transfer in doesn't mean you're getting any less opportunities, it's just whether or not you take them.”
