Rajendra Roopchan says finding someone to talk to is more important to a college student than finding someone who has all the answers.

“Having a person or a community to suggest, ‘You can do this’ or ‘These are your options’ is a phenomenal resource to have.”

While the senior completes his degree in social work from UNC Greensboro’s School of Health and Human Sciences, he’s fulfilling that need for other students through the Transfer2Transfer peer-to-peer program. It connects new transfer students to share their stories and knowledge on adapting to a different institution.
