Hello %%First Name%%!

I want to say welcome to the University of Minnesota!!! I am personally SO glad you chose to come here! I LOVE the University of Minnesota and I really think that you will too!

You might be wondering who I am and why I'm emailing you... well, my name is Hillary and I am your Transfer Student Insider!

Now I'm sure you might be questioning what exactly that means... well, I'm here to tell you! As a Transfer Student Insider, my job is to be a source of support and help in your transition here at the U. Questions about Boynton, career fairs, or other resources the U has to offer? I can help! Recommendations for some great study spaces? I've got a few in mind! Or maybe you're wondering about on-campus jobs or student groups? I can assist in that too! No questions, but you still want to grab Starbucks (set up an appointment with me and it buys us both a coffee!) and talk about life? I'm here for you! The Transfer Student Network has us Insiders for all of those purposes!

I sincerely hope that EVERYONE is enjoying their first couple weeks here and that you all feel like this is the beginning of an unbeatable experience!

One more thing I have for you all: I really want to emphasize participating in groups and activities at the U of M, especially within the first few weeks of your first semester here! It's a great feeling to develop those awesome college relationships right when you get here! I'm so glad I was open to new things and encouraged myself to get out and explore, and I think you will feel the same way!

Again if you have questions about groups and events, or are looking to connect with a fellow transfer student (me), please don't hesitate to contact the Transfer Student Network at Orientation and First Year Programs!

You are all rockstars! Keep it up!

Your Transfer Student Insider,

Hillary Husband
