Major: Communication Studies
Academic Year: Senior
Previous Institution: Salisbury University
Involvement: Excellence Project
Advice for Transfer Students: A piece of advice that I would give is to join clubs and organizations so that you can create relationships with other students. It usually doesn't come easily to transfer students to make relationships with students and faculty, so if you show that you are willing and wanting to become part of clubs and organizations those people will be more willing to help you in your transition.
