5 Ways Transfer Orientation Can Help You Rock Your First Semester at Monmouth University

We know, we know. You’ve already attended an orientation at your old school, so you don’t need to attend another one at your transfer destination.

But you’ve got it wrong. It’s just as important for transfer students to attend orientation at their new school.

Transfer students have a shorter timetable to take advantage of all of the amazing things offered by Monmouth University. That’s why we planned a quick orientation specifically to help new transfers hit the ground running.

Whether you’re looking to make new friends, get involved on campus, or connect with your academic department, attending our transfer-specific orientation is your first step to soaring as a Monmouth Hawk.
