National Transfer Student Week began this week at UW-Madison with a full lineup of events, including various welcome lunches, open houses and fundraisers.
The Transfer Transition Program, part of the Center for the First-Year Experience, seeks to emphasize the role that transfer students play in making the Wisconsin Idea happen on campus by acknowledging the “wealth of experience, skills and knowledge [transfer students bring] when [they] transfer,” according to their website.
The program uses National Transfer Student Week “to celebrate transfer students and the folks who support them.” In line with this sentiment, the organization offers events like “Transfer Acts of Kindness,” where members will recognize transfer students and their supporters with free snacks and beverages.
Additionally, “Transfer Week Study Jam,” a series of workshops designed to address questions regarding study tips, resumes and the role of one’s digital presence will be held on Oct. 23.
CALS Academic Advising, English Major Advising and Academic Advising Services for L&S students will host open houses and welcome events for transfer students to familiarize themselves with academic services on campus throughout the week.
