Natalie Cartulla doesn’t fit the description of the “typical” transfer student. She’s 28 with two toddlers and a busy job schedule. Natalie, a transfer student from Meridian Community College, chose MSU’s Meridian campus partly because it is close to home. She says the night and blended courses help her balance school with her other responsibilities. At MSU-Meridian, Natalie has found a supportive faculty and staff who understand her hectic life outside the classroom.
