Transfer Student Networks

Colorado State University offers a number of networks designed specifically for new transfer students. Our networks are made up of a small number of transfer students with an interest in learning more about the resources at CSU, and making connections with other transfer students who share similar passions and interests. The networks focus on supporting your success at CSU, introduce you to opportunities for academic and social involvement, and provide direct connections to resources, services, and people at CSU.

We operate a number of unique networks designed to meet your needs, interests, and passions.

Transfer Student Networks - Students join a group that meets weekly throughout the semester (for the first 8 to 10 weeks or longer) and are paired with a Transfer Transition Leader. This program provides a flexible, non-credit opportunity that is designed to help you make the most of your college experience by providing chances to build a smaller community with a group of transfer students.  These networks are based upon a passion or interest and ask for participation in a weekly meeting and may have additional weekend commitments. Please click on the network you are interested in joining for more information and an application. The following networks will be offered during the fall 2017 semester, but may be subject to change:
