The third annual National Transfer Student Week takes place October 21 – October 25, 2019. This awareness campaign aims to recognize the contributions transfers bring to schools across the nation and engage students with transfer-focused programming.
This year’s theme is “Celebrate your Transfer Story.” We’ll be sharing our transfer students’ journeys and successes on social media from October 14th – October 25th. Please join in the conversation with the hashtag #TransferStudentWeek.
In addition to their individual accomplishments, our transfer students have attained a number of collective achievements this year. Most notably, the new Transfer Hawks Club Mentorship Program. Our dedicated club members helped mentor over 20 incoming students this past semester to ease their transition into the University. They’re already building on this momentum by doubling their club’s size in the last month. We expect great things on the horizon from this amazing group of students.
Monmouth University’s chapter of Tau Sigma, the national transfer honor society, has also had a productive year. The group boasts its largest membership in three years after this past spring’s induction ceremony. The new executive board aims to further increase its membership and become more active on campus through philanthropy.
We’ve also planned an exciting series of events to engage transfer students during National Transfer Student Week. We invite students, administrators, faculty, and staff to participate in this year’s line-up.
