  • Transfer Day Tips
    • Always put a positive spin on difficult topics, i.e. parking, large classes, etc. but be truthful, don’t lie.
    • Refer to the dorms as “residence halls” and explain the difference if you need to, i.e. suites, single rooms, three-person rooms, etc.
    • Review buildings and look at campus map online to refresh your memory in case you have to walk a student to an appointment.
    • If you don’t know answers to questions, just say that you don’t know but that you will find the answer for them – either ask another ambassador/Bill/Deana right then or take the student’s name and ask Bill or Deana to answer the student’s question later.


  • Next meeting is October 9 at 8:00 in the Union, room 226.
