UNLV Student Organizations
LEE Transfer Student Club (LTSC)
LTSC (pronounced Let’s See) offers transfer students both helpful resources as well as opportunities for friendly socializing. This is a no-pressure club where students help other students, and students can engage as much or as little as they want or as their schedules allow.
By the time transfer students get started at UNLV, they may have only two years remaining until graduation. They need to learn how everything works quickly so they can make the most of their short time in LEE. This club can help with that. Transferring schools creates some notable opportunities – new classes, new people, new experiences, and nerve-racking challenges – new classes, new campus, new people, new “how does this work here?” Of course, LEE advisors can answer many questions, but sometimes, students just want to talk with another student who has had similar experiences.
The club is open to all LEE transfer students. Fall 2022` is the inaugural semester for the club, transfer students admitted since spring 2021 are invited to join as well.
