Campus Champion

Ragin Hewitt found her place at SUNY Cortland with the help of a strong transfer student support system. Now, the senior childhood/early childhood education major is paying it forward as a member of the Transfer Network Team. Knowing firsthand the issues that are unique to students coming from other colleges, Ragin provides guidance and friendship to new transfers. And she’s helping first-year students too — the COR 101 teaching assistant leads discussions about time management and setting academic goals. This week, SUNY Cortland recognizes all our transfers as part of National Transfer Student Week. Learn more on our Transfer Student Support website.
