Connections Program

The Connections program will assist you with your transition into the Linfield College community during the first few weeks of the semester. This program, led by our Transfer Coordinator, Charlotte Goddard, and peer mentors is designed to offer opportunities for you to familiarize yourself with campus, meet people, and learn about Linfield College and the McMinnville community.  You will be contacted by your Connections mentors via your Linfield email.

Keep in mind that the Connections mentors are just that - mentors to guide you in your transition to Linfield and to introduce you to opportunities in the Linfield community. For questions related to your academic planning and course selection, contact your faculty advisor.
