Google Hangout: Transfer Edition

Google Hangout Transfer Edition

We have to wait so long to meet you in person, waiting until we see you for the start of Wildcat Welcome in September. But, fear not, as we have an exciting medium to chat with you and to answer any and all of the questions you have throughout the summer months. We'll be hosting a few different Google Hangout: On Air sessions for our incoming first-time college students.  Those dates are below.  In addition, we will be hosting a couple of "Hangouts with Wildcat Welcome" just for our transfer students, because we know you all may have some specific questions.  Each session will air live from our website and will include six of our student leaders (Board of Directors, Peer Advisers, or Family Ambassadors). We'll be spread around the globe, but will come together to answer questions that you submit live (as you watch) via Twitter, Facebook, and e-mail. Pretty awesome, right? Don't worry if you cannot watch live, we'll post the recording of each "hangout" on our 'Hangout with Wildcat Welcome' page.
