Hi [Student’s name], 

Now that you’ve heard a little bit about us, we would like to share a little bit about Brett’s transfer journey from College of Lake County to Parkside. Brett transferred to Parkside this Fall 2020 semester and is a Business Management major. 
I was definitely a bit nervous about taking courses completely online, but at the moment, I am liking it considering it saves me about 1.5 hours of round-trip commute. I am currently planning on majoring in Business Management. 
 
When I was transferring from CLC, I was very nervous as I was leaving a place where I had built such great relationships with my professors and school staff. While I have only been on campus once at UW-Parkside, I can say that I found both my business advisor, Diana Villegas-Cristerna, and career advisor, Sarah Warzecha, really helpful. Additionally, I feel like I have still been able to build solid connections with my professors in both of my live-virtual classes. 
 
I would point to a couple things that helped me with my transition to UWP. The first of which was how responsive you were Jenna, when I had initially reached out to you with my questions about transferring. I also appreciated the check-in emails I received from you throughout my semester asking how things were going for me. The other reason was that when I was feeling anxious closer to the start of my first semester, both Diana and Sarah helped calm my nerves a bit about my major and transfer.
