As a transfer student, there are fellow Buffs, campus offices and resources available that can help you make a smooth transition to CU Boulder. Whether you want to find your community, excel in your academic path or explore new things, here are some ways to have a fresh start at your new school. 

1. Meet the Transfer Peer Mentors

Transfer Peer Mentors are current CU Boulder transfer students who are here to support you during your time as a Transfer Buff. They are happy to connect with you directly to share their experiences, provide insight into the CU Boulder experience or simply answer any questions you may have. Meet the Peer Mentors.

2. Attend transfer student events 

Attending campus events is a great opportunity to try new things, participate in fun activities and even get to know others you might not otherwise have had the chance to meet.

Throughout the semester, there will be events specifically for transfer students. Join these events to meet fellow Buffs, get involved and have fun! Be sure to pick up your free Transfer Buff t-shirt when you attend an event and check out all transfer student events.

3. Find your community

Sometimes, to make a big school feel like home, it helps to find your group of people.  

Getting involved can help you meet friends, discover interests and hobbies and even explore different career paths. Here are a few of the many possibilities to check out this semester:

4. Volunteer

Volunteering is another great way to connect with CU Boulder and the Boulder community. Not only can you meet new people and make a positive impact in your community, but there are many options to fit your interests and schedule. Visit the Volunteer Resource Center (VRC) to learn more. If you’re looking for a way to engage in meaningful service over your spring break, consider taking an Alternative Breaks trip for a chance to explore the U.S. while making a difference and creating connections.
