Transfer Connection

March 14, 2018


Did you know there is a national honor society just for transfer studentsTau Sigma was created by a transfer student who did not qualify for other honor societies until his last semester at his university. Students who transfer at least 27 semester hours of credit, are full time students, and earn at least a 3.5 GPA in their first semester at UNL are eligible and invited to join. We will induct new members in April.  Some of these new members will participate with us in the Big Event next month. You are welcome to volunteer with us. Register by Friday, March 16 and select Tau Sigma as your organization. Then send me your phone number so you get a text about where to meet. I promise that is all we’ll use the number for.


What’s in your wallet? Do you need to improve your money management skills? Check out all the resources at the Student Money Management Center. Use their on-line resources or schedule a money coaching session that meets your needs.  Take advantage of this great resource you help pay for with student fees.


Top Ten Reasons why your career won't be like college.


10.  There is no spring break in your career. You have to earn vacation.

9.  You no longer get to drop the lowest grade.

8.  Unlike skipping a class, there are immediate consequences for skipping work.

7.  There are no semesters. The work is ongoing and cumulative.

6.  Unlike your professor, your boss doesn't have to tell you why you failed to get the job, the promotion, or the day off.

5.  You can't withdraw from a project and take it next term with a different professor.

4.  Universities are rarely involved in hostile takeovers.

3.  Extra credit?  Are you kidding?

2.  It is time to pay back student loans. You really are responsible.


and the Number one reason why your career won't be like college...

1.  You are expendable. You must prove to your employer every day you are worth your paycheck.


Stay safe over spring break. Drink responsibly. Use common sense—and sun screen. There will be no Transfer Connection during spring break.
