Community college experience helps transfer students adjust to campusNovember 9, 2018 |

This past fall, the University welcomed transfer students for the first time in decades.
The nine students come from a variety of backgrounds, including prior enrollment in community colleges and service in the military. Representing a range of ages from 20 to 33, some entered as first-years, others as sophomores. They applied for many reasons, and plan to study everything from philosophy to mechanical and aerospace engineering.
As they begin life at Princeton, the students have encountered unique challenges, but also unique advantages.
