Transfer Orientation Leader and Mentors

Our Transfer Orientation Leader and Mentors are current undergraduate post-traditional, veteran, and/or transfer students.  During all Transfer Orientation sessions, they guide our new students through their initial Winthrop experience.  During the academic semesters, they host a variety of events at the start of and are available to meet individually with students to share their experiences, and assist in a successful Winthrop experience.  Transfer Orientation Leader and Mentors also reach out to their Orientation students throughout their first semester to make sure they're transitioning well to campus.
