The Transfer Nook officially opened on September 4, 2018. This new space, designed specifically for transfer students, is located in the lower level of the Student Center, adjacent to the Transfer Services Office. Our small grand opening took place during the first week of classes to help welcome our new and returning transfers to campus.
This cozy area sports couches and chairs which surround a new bulletin board for transfer-specific news. Continuously updated by student staff, the board currently features student profiles and will routinely add flyers about upcoming events and departmental announcements.
The development of the Transfer Nook is a direct response to student feedback. In a 2017 student satisfaction survey, transfer students indicated that they wanted a separate area to spend time relaxing and studying between classes. The Office of Transfer & Undeclared Services quickly acknowledged this and developed a space located near their offices.
The Commuter Lounge provides another accessible space for the 85% of Monmouth University transfer students who are commuters. Overall, the department wants all transfers to experience a comfortable and welcoming environment on campus.
The Office of Transfer and Undeclared Services plans to host several gatherings throughout the academic year to allow students the opportunity to engage with each other and cultivate a strong transfer community at the university. Transfer students are encouraged to stop by! Check our Instagram or Twitter for updates.
