- Why attend?
- Student Experience
As a Transfer Edge student, you will meet current UCI students who are trained to become your Transfer Edge mentors and welcome you to UCI. The Transfer Edge mentors will help you transition to the UCI campus and college life by creating a meaningful and supportive program environment. A formal Leadership Development Program is offered to Transfer Edge Alumni and transfer students throughout the UCI community beginning in winter quarter as a hands-on leadership experience resulting in participants becoming the official Transfer Edge Mentors. By becoming a Transfer Edge mentor, students give feedback on the past year’s program, help develop program events, and work closely with the students during the upcoming Transfer Edge program.
Meet your 2019 Transfer Edge Mentors
4th year, Business Administration
I was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt, in which I spent most of my life. When I first moved to California I have been told by many that UCI is one of the best schools in the country. I love school and education and wished that I could have the opportunity of studying in the US. But never imagined a few years ago that I will get the chance to become a UCI student and call myself an anteater. I feel both lucky and blessed and still cannot believe that I am actually graduating this spring.
