The week of October 18-22 is designated as National Transfer Week. Transfer students are an integral part of the UNC Greensboro community, making up almost half of our graduating class each year. Read on to see how we’re celebrating our Spartan transfers and learn more about the transfer experience at UNCG.
SPARTAN TRANSFER STORIES
Serena Crosby-Brown, Human Development and Family Studies
“I have made amazing connections with both faculty and staff members in just the short time I’ve been at UNCG. There are jobs on campus that I would have never applied to unless I was pushed by my FYE 101: Succeed at the G instructor. I’m so grateful to her because now I work as a Spartan Guide and I absolutely LOVE IT!! Without this campus involvement I don’t think I would love going to UNCG as much as I do now.”
Zavia Dickerson, Human Development and Family Services
“Dr. Coard is one of my favorite professors because she always is willing to hear us out when we have questions and concerns. There have been times where we may have been in the wrong about an assignment but she was there to listen. Our discussions are the best part of class. She encourages us to share stories or state any comments relating to the unit, and I love that she makes us all feel so safe to share such personal things about ourselves.”
Adyera Robinson, Professions in Deafness (Interpreter Concentration)
“I have made many connections with students! From people in my major/minor to those I met going to random student events, I’ve met some pretty cool people here. When you first move on campus, it can be a lonely experience, especially if you go with no prior connections. But having a community is so important and it’s nice to have people by your side to go through college with. I’ve even run into people I went to high school and even middle school with just going to club meetings and walking around campus, you never know who’s here!”
Shirin Mohammad Alhroob, Information Systems & Supply Chain Management
“I started this fall in a new role as a cyber security researcher at UNCG. I chose the field of IT because of my natural interest in computers. I believe this field would enable me to provide a secure future. I am passionate about technology because it is about building better tools. I am good at programming, but I would say I am more passionate about solving problems.”
