Welcome to Baruch College!
Transfer Student Network
Transfer Student Network is an inaugural program that provides opportunities for incoming transfer students to connect with current students who previously transferred to the College. Incoming transfer students are provided with a peer mentor who will help them in their transition to the College. The peer mentor can enhance the mentee’s undergraduate experience through meaningful relationships that foster engagement, learning, and community building, with an aim to promote personal growth, embrace diversity and inclusion, and connect and network with the Baruch community. Get paired and succeed!
