After I decided to come to Appalachain, I was invited to join a group on Facebook (Appalachian State Transfers) specifically for transfer students. At first, I thought it was going to be just a place where other transfer students listed apartments they were subleasing and items they were selling. I soon found out it was actually a place for students, like me, to make friends and attend events on campus.
Appalachian hosts events that allows other transfer students to mingle. The school provides food an entertainment and creates a comfortable environment for conversation and activity. Some events have included bowling, movie nights and other fun activities. Being a transfer student, I know first-hand how hard it is to make friends and get out of that personal buddle. Therefore, these events are so helpful when it comes to engaging in social opportunities.
Also, through this group, students can interact with each other and ask important questions regarding student life. They also allow students to introduce themselves on the group to meet other transfer students. This introduction is how I met one of my close friends!
