Transfer Assistants are current Michigan Tech transfer students who are trained to provide peer support, answer questions, plan networking events, and more. They can be great resources for information, campus news, and friendship—take a minute and get to know our current Transfer Assistant.

I am going into my third year at Michigan Tech studying Environmental Engineering. On campus, I am actively involved in Delta Zeta National Sorority and Society of Women Engineers. One of the main reasons I chose Michigan Tech was the reputation and respect that comes along with the name. Once transferring, I fell in love with the community atmosphere and how I am always being pushed to keep improving. In the future, I am hoping to work as an Imagineer for Walt Disney World. My goal is to be able help create the next big innovation that Disney is known for. My advice for transfer students would be not to be afraid and to step out of your comfort zone. I have had the best experience here and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to transfer.
