Why should I request a Transfer Mentor?

Transferring to a new university can be a difficult adjustment. Luckily, TSIS offers a great program that will help you get the most out of your transfer experience: The Transfer Mentor Program.

A transfer mentor can help show you around campus and the community, introduce you to their friends, inform you of cool clubs to join, and even become a lifelong friend. Mentors are past transfer students themselves, so they are familiar with the transfer experience.

When you request a mentor, you will be asked to give some information that can help us pair you with the best mentor for you. We pair students based on similar majors, interests, age, residential/non-residental locations, and cultures. They are required to spend at least one hour a week with you doing activities such as getting lunch, going for coffee, or going to a fun event on or off campus.

If the Transfer Mentor Program sounds like something ythat you would like to be a part of, contact TSIS and we will gladly find you the perfect mentor!
