Hi Ranger!

Now that the Spring semester is underway, we thought it may be helpful to pick up where we left off in this email series with another transfer student story. We would like to share with you a little bit about Morgan’s transfer journey from College of Lake County to UW-Parkside. Morgan transferred to Parkside in Fall 2020 and is a Communication major.

Although my experience at CLC was great, I was very excited for what was next for me in my academic career when it was time to transfer. My interest in the University of Wisconsin-Parkside was sparked by its location, seeing that it was a convenient drive, allowing me to commute.

After looking into the University some more, I quickly realized that they met all of my academic needs, by offering a wide selection of both majors and minors. In fact, I’ve been able to have a major and three minors while still being advised in the right direction to graduate at my ideal time.
The transfer counselors at Parkside made my transition from CLC to Parkside nothing but smooth and optimistic. Additionally, all of the faculty and staff that I’ve crossed paths with thus far have been extremely passionate about their jobs and want nothing more than to educate, support, and encourage their students. Some advice I would give to current CLC students beginning their transfer experience would be to choose a university that feels comfortable and welcoming as well as one that offers academic opportunities that will challenge you! Go Rangers!
