Transfer Ambassadors

The 2016 Transfer Ambassadors were chosen during a selective hiring process to help our incoming transfer students adjust to life at Coastal Carolina University. While transfer students have been college students before, CCU is new for them, and this group of students have lived what they are about to experience.

The most helpful advice I received as a new Chanticleer: Go to office hours! I transferred from a very small technical college, so though I did have office hours, the ones provided by professors at Coastal are beyond helpful, and a great way to get to know your professors.
Favorite Chanticleer tradition? FRIED CHICKEN FRIDAY
Favorite quote? "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" -Marianne Williamson
