The Office of Multicultural Academic and Support Services hosted its first annual Multicultural Transfer Student Networking Reception. In attendance were Vice President of Student Development and Enrollment Services Maribeth Ehasz and three SDES assistant vice presidents. Deans and faculty from the various colleges were also present.

Currently, there are 9, 171 multicultural transfer students on UCF’s campus. The event was held in an effort to reach out and support this segment of the student population. MASS plans to work in close collaboration with the Office of Transfer & Transition Services to provide informative and supportive workshops specifically to create community amongst the multicultural transfer students, as well as assist them in their integration into the overall UCF community.

In addition to the welcoming networking reception, the MASS office plans to establish multicultural transfer student roundtables to provide this particular subgroup of students with the individualized attention necessary to address their specific needs.
