Transfer student group recognizes K-State staff members

By Leah Hill

The Kansas State University transfer ambassador program honored two special staff May 7 for their dedication and commitment to transfer students. Jessica Arnold, assistant coordinator of New Student Services, and John Lantz, coordinator of New Student Services, were presented with certificates of appreciation and custom metal signs.

Program members and advisors selected these individuals based on their involvement with transfer student recruitment, campus visits, understanding of transfer student needs, and overall willingness to go above and beyond for transfer students.

Transfer coordinators in undergraduate admissions Bill Disberger and Deana Core advise the only student group at K-State dedicated to the needs of transfer students, who make up approximately 30 percent of new K-State students each year. All transfer students, including former Phi Theta Kappa members from two-year institutions, are invited to participate.
