National Transfer Student Week
Our world is looking for leaders to rise up and pave the way for future generations. Frontline opportunities in nursing, law enforcement, and scientific research are in high demand. According to the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS), it's vitally important that we build awareness of common transfer barriers and the diverse student needs and identities within our transfer populations. Transferring between institutions can be intimidating, but EKU’s Student Outreach & Transition Office (SOTO) is here to be your personal guide.
October 19-23 is National Transfer Student Week and SOTO has some exciting activities planned to both assist and recognize our students.
Join us on October 20th at 2pm for a virtual session that focuses on BRANDING YOUR FUTURE. In this session, we partner with the Office of Academic & Career Services to discuss how to build your resume and prepare for an interview. We will also be hosting a game of EKU Trivia and giving away prizes to the winners.
Next, come talk with us on October 22 at 5:30pm where our theme is YOU’VE GOT QUESTIONS…WE’VE GOT ANSWERS. Here we partner with the SOTO Transfer Coordinators to walk through the next steps of your transfer to EKU. We will discuss transcripts, course evaluation, transfer scholarships and campus life. This will be an open forum so that transfer students can ask questions.
The SOTO team will top off the week on October 23 at 11am with our TRANSFER STUDENT APPRECIATION DAY. We will team up with several of EKU’s Student Service teams and representatives from each of our major programs to assist all transfer students while making that final decision. We will discuss topics like:
This is a critical time when information and partnership are keys to success. These events are designed to encourage teamwork and promote discovery.
