Students participating in the learning community also receive support from a peer mentor. WiSE transfer peer mentors are upper-division students (also former transfer students) in STEM majors, to help you transition to Iowa State.The WiSE Transfer Experience offers a variety of options and you have the opportunity to choose which component(s) are most beneficial to you. Sign up for the Transfer Experience or contact Sarah DuBois with any questions.
