We know that as a transfer student, you have different expectations as you come to Puget Sound. Our Transfer Essentials Day will help you navigate your new home and settle in to the community of Puget Sound. Activities include lunch with President Crawford and other members of our faculty, a scavenger hunt in Tacoma, specific academic advising information that will be helpful to you as a transfer, and, of course, getting to know other new transfers and soon-to-be new friends.
