• During New Student Orientation, transfer students will be introduced to the Transfer Student Leadership Council (TSLC) and the Office of First-Year Programs staff. At this time, you will have the opportunity to connect with a Transfer Student Leader and a group of new transfer students who can serve as a point of connection throughout your first semester and beyond. You will also have the opportunity to register for LEEU-101-41: Transfer Gateway Seminar - a section designed specifically to help you transition into life at Lee. The Office of First-Year Programs and Transfer Student Leaders will also host various informational sessions and social events throughout your first semester at Lee.

    LEEU-101-41: Transfer Gateway Seminar

    LEEU-101-41: Transfer Gateway Seminar is a section led by First-Year Programs and the Transfer Student Leadership Council that focuses on helping you transition to life at Lee. It is required for all transfer students with less than sixteen hours from another institution, and it is open to all other transfer students. Gateway is one of the best ways to meet and interact one-on-one with peers and Transfer Student Leaders as well as reflect on your journey. Throughout the semester, you will have opportunities to connect through class times, relaxed hangouts, group service projects, and campus-wide events.

    "Transitions" Session

    All incoming transfer students are required to attend the “Transitions” dinner and information session on Tuesday, August 18, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. This session will introduce you to key staff members, offices, and programs at Lee. This meeting will include sessions about Financial Aid, Global Perspectives, StrengthsQuest, service-learning, and other academic support services.

    Service-Learning at Lee

    Service-learning is a key aspect of the student experience at Lee University. On the Sunday of NSO weekend, all new students will participate in Deke Day by serving at various locations in the Cleveland area. This service event will also give you a head start on your service-learning graduation requirement. Transfer students are required to complete the equivalent of ten hours of service for each semester that they are enrolled at Lee. Your Transfer Student Leader and the Office of First-Year Programs can help you connect with service projects led by transfer students or with other service opportunities. If you have specific questions about the service-learning program, you can email the Leonard Center at service@leeuniversity.edu or contact your Transfer Student Leader.
