Transfer Activities Group

The Transfer Activities Group (TAG) offers many social activities for transfer students who desire to connect and form lasting friendships. If you choose to be a part of TAG, you can guarantee your transfer process will be smoother and less stressful; so take advantage of it! Look out for free or discounted events throughout the semester, which you can attend with old friends and new.

A unique benefit of TAG is the opportunity to connect with a fellow student who transferred to PLNU a semester or two before you. Your “mentor” will stay in contact with you to make sure you feel connected and supported during your transition. They're available to help with any questions — academically or otherwise — and assist in connecting you with the right ministries, clubs, or programs on campus.
