  WELCOME TO UNCW!

We are so happy that you have decided to continue your education with us and we can’t wait to meet you! We want you to be successful in everything you do at UNCW. One of the things you can do to help yourself be successful is take advantage of special programming designed just for transfer students. We invite you to participate in our transfer student peer mentor program, The Teal Bridge, a one-semester program that assists transfer students during their initial transition to UNCW. A Teal Bridge Mentor is a UNCW transfer student volunteer who provides leadership and support to new student transfers through the Teal Bridge program. Every transfer student who requests a mentor will be paired with an upperclassman, based on common factors including major, minor and interests. Your mentor will help you find your way round campus and resources, help you meet other students, and show you what the Teal Spirit is all about!

Teal Bridge Mentor programming is done with your success in mind. Subsequently, there are expectations of all mentees, including:
• Mentees will attend workshops and meetings deemed mandatory
• Mentees will meet with mentors at least twice a month outside of workshops
• Mentees will make every effort to attend additional activities that are scheduled to introduce them to the culture and atmosphere of UNCW
• Mentees will ask for and accept assistance offered
