The "Transfer Center": A New Residence Concept.
McLean, Beverly; And Others
A residential concept which developed when administrators and students sought to determine a residential program which would contribute to fulfillment of an institutional goal--that of better accommodating in the largest sense of the word the junior college transfer is discussed. The participants in the program represented people who entered the program at various points and are thus able to contribute several significant vantage points. A review is presented of the historical development of the public community college system in Florida. This discussion explains how the need developed to serve transfer students at Florida State University. The numerous facets of the transfer program that was set up at this university are described in some detail. A future program in the process of being formulated is an evaluation program to measure satisfaction with the institution, participation level and involvement and other adjustment measures such as grade point average.
