Frank James TTO

Name: Frank D. James, Jr.

Hometown: Newport News, Virginia

Major: Business Administration with a Concentration in Management

Transferred from: Durham Technical Community College

"If it was not for the Transfer Transition Office, I would have only attended UNCP for one semester. The differences between a community college and a university can present many questions and or problems. I attempted to find help with no success until I was directed to visit the Transfer Transition Office. The staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They were able to address all my concerns and questions or direct me to the proper avenue. The accessibility of their office provides assistance and a retreat to get away and relax while on campus. The services they provide are so valuable. TTO has the best people, services, and office on campus. All I can say is thanks to them for all that they do.”

Kristin Sheppard TTO

Name: Kristin Sheppard

Hometown: Laurinburg, NC

Major: Elementary Education

Transferred from: Richmond Community College

“The Transfer Transition Office is in one word—AWESOME!! The staff are always friendly and ready to help! They make the office what it is. Every time I come in I am greeted by a warm smile and helpful attitude! They have everything you may need from book to supplies. They offer friendly conversation and laughter-even if you need a place to come sit in between classes. This experience was very stressful for me as a single mother, so I don’t get much work done at home as far as studying. I know I can go to TTO and have everything I need to get my work done without stressing. I don’t know what I would’ve done this semester without TTO!”
