TOMMIE TRANSFERmation, sponsored by the departments of the Anderson Student Center, Campus Life, Residence Life, and Student Engagement, is a six-week program for new transfer students who are first starting their St. Thomas student experience in the Spring Semester. Each week, students and facilitators will come together to learn more about UST culture, traditions, and resources. Students will have the opportunity to talk more about their transition to St. Thomas while becoming more familiar with campus resources and opportunities available to them.
For Spring 2015, TOMMIE TRANSFERmation will meet weekly starting Thursday February 12, 2015 and continue for the following five weeks. Each meeting will include dinner as well as a variety of presentations and activities.
