Transfer Student Voices

I want to say that the TSN has been an invaluable experience for me, and I know that many more students will benefit from its offerings.

Over the past year, it's been nice to be part of a community and build relationships with a group of individuals who don't follow the typical trajectory that most Ivy League students follow.

I want to thank the Transfer Scholars Network and the institutions involved in these unique transfer opportunities for offering students the prospect of pursuing a higher education at one of your institutions. The non-traditional college pathway is paved with uncertainty, and this unique opportunity provides some hope for the arduous road ahead.
