"The thought of being both an upperclassman and the “new kid” was pretty intimidating since I transferred to KU as a junior. However, as soon as I stepped foot on campus, all my fears went away, and I knew I was home. KU was the right choice. The Transfer Community at KU really helps connect new transfers with other students. This community also helps you get connected with events, jobs, and opportunities on campus. Through this community, I found my place as a Transfer Tour Guide to help students find their place at KU."
“Kutztown University was the second school I transferred to, and I should’ve started here in the first place. As a first-generation college student, I have been lucky to have support from TRIO Student Services. They helped me every step of the way to continue my degree, even during the pandemic. I was able to gain a mentor, succeed in my classes after struggling online, and balance my responsibilities. Without TRIO, I wouldn’t have survived college."
Kutztown University is recognized as a top transfer institution by Phi Theta Kappa!
