The Beat Goes On

By Donna Sharpe, Editor, Transfer eNewsletter

Megan McConnell is a hard act to follow! She is an incredibly accomplished adviser who works tirelessly to address the concerns of students and advisers alike. I have had the good fortune to work with Megan on a variety of projects including the annual CC/UW Advising Conference, new transfer student orientation and I partner with her as one of the two pre-law advisers in UAA Advising. Her willingness to tackle the tough jobs, as well as her incredible organizational skills and wonderful sense of humor make her the kind of colleague who is a pure joy to work with. Her magic touch has made this newsletter a useful tool for prospective transfer students and community college advisers alike.

My own commitment to transfer students is founded in my experience of thirty years on the Bellevue College campus as an adviser, counselor and faculty member. After moving to the UW in November 2010, I assumed duties that supported transfer students and promoted the transfer process. Taking over the Transfer eNewsletter is a natural extension of that path. Now I have to dust off those skills I learned as editor of my high school newspaper! I welcome your input and ideas on what you would like to see in this newsletter. I am most easily contacted via email at dsharpe@uw.edu.
