How North Dakota State University welcomed transfer students to campus
The National Transfer Student Week (NTSW) is an annual event held the third week of October to celebrate transfer students.
While NDSU receives transfer students every year, providing the new students with resources and different experiences on campus is important.
Transfer student week is dedicated to the betterment of transfer students by improving their experiences at a new campus. The entire week consists of events that are centered around transfer students.
The week started out with the NTSW Treat Day on Oct. 21. The Career and Advising Center invited all transfer students to come and get a treat at their office while learning more about the resources offered.
Then on Oct. 23, Bingo Night was held in the Memorial Union Hidatsa room from 6:45 to 8:30 p.m. During the event, transfer students were able to socialize with each other and have fun playing bingo all while winning desirable grocery prizes.
Meet and Greet with Farm Animals was a special event held Oct. 24. It was an all-day family-friendly event which invited transfer students and their family to visit the campus, interact with different animals and learn about NDSU’s livestock animals.
To end the week, transfer students were invited to an Open House on Oct. 25. Transfer students on campus also had the opportunity to attend a resource fair during that day.
There are many other resources available to transfer students who choose to come to NDSU. Many of these can be found on the NDSU Transfer Student Services website.
According to the website, NDSU understands that the needs and questions of transfer students vary greatly from student to student, which is why the page was designed to provide resources to newly admitted or current transfer students.
Within the Transfer Student Services, transfer students can find different resources such as the Office of Admission, Registration and Records along with Student Success Programs.
Any questions or concerns transfer students may have can be answered or resolved either by the offices or students will be directed to the right place.
On the page, transfer students can also find additional resources that can range from Financial Aid and Scholarships, immunizations, dining centers, tuitions/payments and more as they can find contact information and common questions other transfer students have asked.
NDSU recommends transfer students to stay active on campus and to utilize the resources newly available to them.
