Why did you become a mentor?
I became a mentor so that I could help incoming transfer students adjust to their new lives on the Forty Acres. As a transfer student myself, I knew from personal experience how hard it was to get acclimated to a new university, so I wanted to become a mentor to hopefully make that process easier for other transfers!
Piece of advice to future transfer students:
It can be really scary being in a completely new and unfamiliar environment when you first transfer, but don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and get involved in something as soon as you get to campus!
