July 11, 2013 (Jackson) - Transfer B & U Day on July 19 is set-aside for all new transfer students to help them prepare for their first semester at Belhaven University.
Jake Donald, Associate Director of Admission, said, Transfer B & U Day is a day specifically for incoming transfer students to meet one-on-one with their academic advisers to register for the fall semester. Not only will the students have the opportunity to register, but they will also be able to connect with friends, faculty and staff before the semester starts. Because of the community here at Belhaven, students will start to feel right at home.
Students can check-in Friday at 9:30 a.m. in the lobby of the Barber Auditorium and will be able to meet with faculty advisers, schedule fall semester classes, get a student ID and parking decal. The bookstore will be open and selling textbooks, supplies, university shirts and all things Belhaven. The business office will also be open and ready to get students set up financially for the semester.
