Selena Hailey Meints, Candidate for Transfer Senator

I am a new transfer Junior from Lincoln Land Community College, who is looking to advocate for transfer students here at UIS. I am a Peer Advisor in OASIS, a member of CSF, and a Public Administration major with a minor in Political Science. Two important issues arise by being a transfer; usually most transfer students are commuters, (which aides in the lack of socialization and joining organizations). Some transfers only get a small merit award from financial aid when they are applying for the college (compared to the Freshman who are awarded hefty scholarships). I’d like to take a look at these issues.
