Transfer Community Special Interest Group

Residence Hall: Dixon Hall

The Transfer Community is a Special Interest Housing for on campus transfer students. Students have the opportunity to connect with other transfer students, participate in variety of activities throughout the year that were designed to connect them to the Kutztown University community and all its resources, and assist with their overall transition. As a member of the Transfer Community, students will also be taking part in a variety of experiences that were designed to meet the needs of incoming transfer students.
