A article written by former student and transfer mentor Nadia Ahmadein This article will help explain why Students in Transition (STS) is worth your time. January 24, 2010 Beating the Transfer Blues at Rutgers My experience as a Rutgers transfer student began a little more than two years ago. I entered RU in the fall semester of 2007 as a sophomore from Montclair State, a university totaling 246 acres compared to Rutgers-New Brunswick’s 2,681. I had been so excited about coming her, but shortly after I arrived my anticipation was eclipsed by angst. Navigating the sprawling New Brunswick campuses looked like an impossible feat. I found the bus system intimidating, and although I was told about tools like Degree Navigator, Webreg, and MyRutgers to give me information and direction, I hadn’t a clue how to use them correctly. It was like being a freshman all over again. Nothing was familiar, and it seemed like everyone belonged to a culture I hadn’t yet learned and would never be a part of.
