Kelsey Nicholson - The Transfer Center

I feel like disarming is a strength of mine, and one super easy way for me to help students feel at ease is to make my office not feel sterile, awkward, and strictly academic.  I have a bunch of pictures, posters, and a couple of maps on my walls.  I have one map in particular of the United States where I mark what schools students that I have personally worked with have transferred from.  It is a work in progress and it serves as a good conversation starter, especially since such a big portion of the students I work with transferred from a different school.  Tiny simple things can make such a difference when trying to disarm!
