Transfer Residential Community

Transfer Residential Community Logo

The Transfer Residential Community seeks to promote academic success, connect new transfer students with other new transfer students, and help these students make new connections to the social environment at Clemson. Students living in the Living-Learning Community, Transfer Residential Community, are housed together in Calhoun Courts on campus. This community offers both educational support and opportunities for social engagement as new transfer students expand their network of friends.

 What to Expect:

  • Workshops focused on academic support and getting connected to academic services
  • Career Center workshop sessions to assist new transfer students with career development and exploring new majors
  • Social events such as a Trivia Night, outdoor meet and greet nights, and Movie Nights on campus at the McKissick Theater
  • Sessions designed to assist new transfer students on how to navigate registration and to explain how advising works at Clemson

These students also have a higher overall GPA at the end of their first semester at Clemson as compared to new transfer students not living in the Living-Learning community.

Student Perspective

“I found that joining student organizations, getting involved on campus, and meeting continuing students were great ways to learn about Clemson and ease the transition process in the social context. I also felt the most helpful resources were my professors, the academic success services and continuing students I became friends with.”
– James Loeffler, former transfer Living-Learning community member
