Students meet with college recruiters for Transfer Day, over 50 colleges in attendance

Students learn information about different colleges during Transfer Day on Oct. 5 in the quad. More than 50 colleges were in attendance with university representatives talking to students about their majors and programs.

Transfer Day was hosted in the quad by Transfer Center Coordinator Megan Neves and Transfer Center Student Personnel Assistant Emily Barkley at Cosumnes River College on Oct. 5.

Students were greeted by representatives from over 50 colleges and universities who attended the event to answer questions students had about transferring, their specific programs and majors or the schools themselves.

“The main reason why we do Transfer Day is because we are trying to bring as much information to our students as possible and this is a great way to do it,” Barkley said.

Transfer Day is an event that happens at all four campuses during the fall semester. Barkley and Neves said that a lot of planning goes into Transfer Day to make sure that everything is as streamlined as possible.

“We know that students go to all of our campuses, so we not only focus on how can we best serve CRC students, but also how we can serve the students in the district,” Neves said.

Kayla Miles, a 19-year-old animal science major, said she thought that all of the different programs California State University, Sacramento has to offer were cool to look at.

“I’m just looking around, just to see any opportunities that I could get,” Miles said. “I think it’s a cool opportunity to get to know the schools.”

Miles said she is planning to transfer to Fresno State, but she got useful information from looking around at the different booths universities had set up.

Cyril Williams, a 20-year-old kinesiology major, said that the amount of schools that attended stood out to him.

“I’m just trying to go around and see what schools are here,” Williams said. “It’s pretty good so far.”

Williams said that he’s still deciding on where to transfer but while walking around he got useful information about transferring.

“Sometimes you don’t know enough, so just going up to speak to one of the people that are here and getting the information on that school is useful,” Williams said.

Cordell Nunez, an 18-year-old history major, said the number of colleges and students in attendance was larger than he thought.

“The knowledge of what each school gives and represents is cool to me,” Nunez said. “It’s a happy thing to see that the opportunity is given.”

The deadline for students transferring to most California Universities is Nov. 30. Barkley said it is important that students check when their deadline is and get their application in before the deadline.

Neves encouraged students to plan for one year before their expected transfer date, talk to their counselors about transferring and complete a checklist for transfer success at the Transfer Center.

The Transfer Center is located on the second floor of the College Center at CRC where students can obtain more information about transferring.
