I am a senior, business management major and will be graduating in May!I don't have a hometown due to the fact that my dad is now retired military. I transferred in the fall of 2014 from Arizona State University.

 

I became involved in Teal Bridge as a mentee my first semester at UNCW and met one of my best friends turned roommate through this program. I have now been a mentor for two semesters and I am excited to continue on with this program. I can't wait to meet everyone and start having events!

This program helped my transition to Wilmington so much easier and I met so many amazing people. I wouldn't trade the experiences I have had throughout this program for anything! With joining this group of amazing people I certainly found my fit on campus and I feel it could do the same for you!

Mentor

 

I was born and raised in Clayton, NC. Before attending transferring to UNCW I attended Wake Technical Community College in Raleigh, NC.


I joined TealBridge because I was nervous about attending a new school and a University. With Teal Bridge and the help of my mentor I was able to meet other transfer students and get any questions answered that I had throughout my first semester.


I wanted to become a mentor so I could help other transfer students coming in make then feel like they do have a place here.

Advice for Transfer Students:

Do your best to get involved. Even though you are a transfer and might be a non-traditional student you still have a place at this school and you will only find it if you take the time to get involved in things around campus. And will doing this you will also be able to make new friends along the way.

Kristen is a “military move-arounder” and is a Junior majoring in Exercise Science. She transferred from Methodist University.

Advice for Transfer Students:

One of the most common pieces of advice you will hear as a transfer student is to get involved. My piece of advice does require involvement, but I believe it goes beyond simply getting involved. You have to go outside of your comfort zone and make an effort to really branch out and try new things and meet new people. I can say from personal experience, no matter how many clubs or organizations you join, if you never make an effort to connect with people, you will always be left wondering where your place is.
