Make a special effort to meet people on campus. Participate in activities for transfer students If your school has a Transfer Student office, check their website, visit their office, and read their email or Facebook messages to see what they have planned for you. Attend all events that are specifically designed to help transfer students acclimate to campus. Live on-campus This is a sure-fire way to meet fellow students and get involved in campus life. Residence halls are not just apartments; they are “living and learning communities” that provide social activities, athletics, educational programs, entertainment, and much more. Befriend your resident assistant If you live in a residence hall, get to know your resident assistant. RAs enforce rules, provide assistance, and work to see that everything runs smoothly on their floor. They know their way around campus and may be able to provide useful information about courses, professors, and campus life. They’re also there for personal support when the going gets tough. Reach Out to People To achieve success in your new environment, get involved in student activities and organizations, meet new people, and take full advantage of the services your new college has to offer.
