Transfer Connections is a separate event from Fall Transfer Island View Orientation held early in the summer and is designed to introduce you to other transfer students, campus student leaders, staff and administrators, and to help you find your place at CI. You will receive advice from current transfer students, meet fellow classmates in your major, connect to an Orientation Leader, and learn timely information.

Continued participation in activities and events is an important step in making the transition to life as a Dolphin and is the best way to acclimate yourself to life as a CI student. This is a casual dinner event, so wear your CI gear and bring your curiosity. The RSVP link will go live late spring semester, so hold the date on your calendar for Friday, August 22, 2014.
