Campus News: Molloy College aims to make transfer easy
By Laura LaVacca
Deciding on just where you are going to go, after a two year school or as a transfer student from another college, can be a very arduous and stressful task. Leaving the comforts of a previous campus, familiarity with professors and secure relationships can, rightfully so, make any student uneasy about the transition. This is exactly what the campus of Molloy College is prepared for and understands. Molloy prides itself on the many programs it offers and the propensity to make transfer students, and all students really, comfortable and involved. With a retention rate of 89%, it's clearly working.
Dean of Admissions, Marguerite Lane, explains that Molloy has many differentiated programs in place including those for transfer students, "We have an orientation for transfers. They are a different population than those who are 18 year old incoming freshmen from high school. Instead, they may be 20 or even 60 year old students from different backgrounds." There is also a transfer day event and welcoming committee to help students adjust and receive mentoring.
