SCOUTing the Path for New Transfers

The College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR) at OSU welcomes approximately 300 new transfer students each semester.

To help ease the transition from a junior college or another four-year institution, CASNR has created a program to help students.

“The Success Coaches for Outstanding Transfers (SCOUT) program is a peer-mentor group for incoming transfer students who have successfully navigated the transfer experience themselves with regard to academics, student involvement, and personal and professional development,” said Amy Gazaway, CASNR career development coordinator.

In its first year, the program had 15 SCOUTs who had successfully made the transition to OSU from other institutions.

SCOUT does not just provide academic assistance, but also career support, and even helps with everyday problems like parking.

“Once the program becomes known to incoming transfers, the communication between the SCOUTs and the students will make the program be an ace in the hole,” said Mindy Andres, CASNR senior and member of SCOUT.
