Transfer Transition Program

Transitioning to a new university can be challenging. Our Transfer Transition Program is designed to provide our new transfer students with resources to aid in a smooth transition to Viterbo University.  We can help you explore your academic major, get more information about Viterbo services, and connect you with a peer mentor to aid in your successful transition to Viterbo. The program offers:

  • weekly email communication regarding important services on our campus.
  • connection to a peer mentor to help you navigate and acclimate to Viterbo.

The Transfer Transition Program is coordinated by Ryan Thibodeau, Director of Transfer & Adult Admissions . For more information about the program, contact Ryan at 608-796-3015 or rmthibodeau@viterbo.edu, or visit his office located on the first floor of Reinhart Center in room 124.

Hey there, my name is Reid Gerber, and I am the transfer mentor here at Viterbo. I am originally from Rochester, MN and came to Lacrosse to join the track team at UWL and go for an ESS degree. Well after two years I decided to switched to nursing and make the jump over to Viterbo! I am as outdoorsy as it comes, and love to do anything as long as I’m outside! I’m also always down to relax and watch a movie or play a card game. I know transferring to a new school can be difficult, especially if you’re coming to a new city on top of it. That’s why I am here, if you ever have any questions, school or non school related, feel free to reach out at any time via email, phone: 507-951-5481, or Snapchat- rgthefirst34
