Hit the Ground Running 

Employers and graduate schools want to see an impressive resume of experiences in addition to good grades in challenging classes. 

As a transfer student, you will have less time at the U to get involved in activities to build that resume. To achieve your life goals, you will need to hit the ground running after your acceptance at the U!
