Transfer Student Appreciation Week 2020
Starting Monday, October 19, we’re kicking off National Transfer Appreciation week with both virtual and socially distanced events. From Career Services workshops to advising and registration tutorials to the Transfer Student Social, we’re all about celebrating our Pace transfer students!
Now more than ever before, students are choosing to transfer to schools that fit their unique needs and goals for the future, and we celebrate our Setters who have selected Pace as the next step in their academic journey. Join us for the 2020 National Transfer Appreciation week, which will take place Monday, October 19, through Friday, October 23, to do just that! There will be both virtual and socially distanced events in order to express our appreciation for our transfer students—and it’s all happening across both campuses.
You’ll get a chance to learn more about the tools and resources we offer here at Pace, how to prepare for meetings with your advisor, information about registration for classes, an exclusive workshop with Career Services on how to leverage your experience as a transfer student in the job market, and a whole lot more.
