Transfer Connections, a mentoring program for incoming summer, fall and winter transfer students to the University of MIchigan ackowledges the unique and differing needs that exist between first-year undergraduate students and transfer students, despite their shared experience as new students at the University of Michigan. We plan targeted activities and events to help transfer students feel at home at the University of Michigan.
