It is a program just for Transfer students, to help meet your needs during this time of transition to UNCW. You are moving into Teal territory and the bridge is how you get there! We know most of you have already been to college before and have an idea of what it is like. However, UNCW is a new atmosphere for you with its own culture, rules, regulations and resources — some of which you may not have encountered before but which will be crucial to your success. Teal Bridge programs and Teal Bridge Mentors (volunteer transfer students) are designed to help you navigate the newness so that you can make the most of your time here. Having recently been a new transfer student just like you, Teal Bridge Mentors are ready to share what they have learned and to support your efforts as you adapt to “The Dub!” To sign up for a mentor or to become a Bridge Mentor and get a roster of upcoming events, visit www.uncw.edu/transitions or contact Barbie Cowan at 910-962-2196 or email@example.com.
