Transfer Orientation Leader & Mentors

Transitioning to college life can be challenging. Military, Adult, and Transfer Services is committed to providing you with a great experience as you begin your studies at Winthrop University.  Our Transfer Orientation Leader and Mentors (TOLMs) are here to assist you!  These students serve in a dual role - during Orientation they'll guide you through your experience, and then during the semester are available to serve as a resource to you as you navigate Winthrop.

Your Transfer Orientation Leaders

As a part of Orientation, Welcome Week, and throughout the semester, you’ll be matched up with an Transfer Orientation Leader & Mentor -  who is a military, adult, and/or transfer student committed to assisting you in your Winthrop experience! Transfer Orientation Leader and Mentors serve as a connection to campus by participating in Orientation, hosting social events at the start of the semester to help you build relationships, and answer any questions you may have about campus life.

As a military, adult, and/or transfer student, you have specific concerns and questions about your Winthrop experience.  Who better to ask than another student who has been in your shoes?  The TOLMs are available during the semester to meet and chat about your experience. Transfer Orientation Leader and Mentors are available to meet in-person, chat on the phone, or answer questions via e-mail.  Getting connected with them is as easy as submitting a quick Mentoring Request Form
