Hi everyone, I'm Ari Massefski, the Student Association's Director of New Students. It's a gaudy title, but it basically means that I advocate to the university on behalf of new students-- incoming freshmen and transfer students. If there's anything I can do to help anyone, whether it's advocacy or just help with class registration, please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
@GuyAtCC: The article from the Hatchet is correct. This year, much of the "transfer student community" will be housed in Lafayette Hall, which is a decent dorm in a great location (literally right in the heart of campus). This is a big improvement from last year, when many transfer students were on the Mount Vernon Campus and ended up moving to Foggy Bottom because they wanted to be in the city. While there's no guarantee of housing assignment, there is a much better chance for this year's transfer students to live on Foggy Bottom.
If anyone has any other questions, please feel free to shoot me an email! I'll check this thread periodically, but I'll always respond to emails quickly and I'm happy to help you with whatever you need.
Looking forward to meeting you all!
