Transfer Day gives students the chance to find out more about surrounding colleges, as well as out of state.

Students at Cosumnes River College that wanted to learn more about transferring options gathered at the fountain quad area on Tuesday, Sept. 20, for the college’s annual Transfer Day.

Representatives from local universities in California such as: Sacramento State, UC Davis and UC Merced came to campus with other universities from other states were present as well to speak to students and give them more information about transferring options to their universities.

Sarah Willis, 18, undeclared major said, “I am still unsure about my major and where I will go after CRC. Talking to different colleges in the area has really helped me think of more options for my future education.”

Willis said that she is torn between two colleges, because of the event. She said that speaking to the representatives was helpful and they gladly answered all of her questions.

Tony Albert, a 26-year-old, business major said, “Being an older adult at a community college is a little different. I always dreamed of transferring to Berkeley, and talking to them today really made it feel possible.”

Transfer Day was intended to last from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., but many students continued to come out to the booths and and visit different universities throughout the day.

“I share the same major with many of my friends and they already know where they are going to transfer, but I still am unsure,” said 22-year-old nursing major Carrie Davis.

Davis said she came out to find more options for universities in California.

Transfer Day at CRC was a great way for students to understand a little bit more about universities of their choosing as well as students that are still unsure of their educational future.

“It was awesome to be able to come out and talk to different universities about different options for me,” said Davis.
