June 28, 2012 (Jackson) - Transfer students will get their first glimpse into life at Belhaven University and start preparing for their first semester during Transfer B & U Day on July 20.

Suzanne Sullivan, Director of Admission, said “Transfer B & U Day is the perfect day for transfers to come to campus and register for classes for the fall semester. We want them to come on campus to get connected and engaged with faculty and other students with whom they will spend the next two-three years.”

Students can check-in Friday at 9:30 A.M. in the lobby of the Barber Auditorium and can meet withfaculty advisors, schedule fall semester classes, get a student ID and parking decal. The bookstore and business offices will be open and ready to get students set up for the semester.

“Many transfer students work or have other responsibilities, so we realize they don't have a lot of free time, so we do our best to schedule the events of the day in a short amount of time,” adds Sullivan.

Preregister for Transfer B & U Day and mark your calendars for July 20, 2012.
