Spring Transfer Fair!

On Wednesday, March 22nd, 2023, the Skyline College Transfer Center hosted a Transfer Fair during College Hour. University representatives from approximately 15 campuses including UCs, CSUs, and private colleges and universities were present to engage with students and answer questions about transfer admission, campus resources, next steps for admitted students, and more!  Several academic departments from CSU East Bay also attended including Business & Economics, Kinesiology, Psychology, and the College of Science. Students were able to learn more about their majors of interest and gain in-depth information on major-specific requirements and opportunities. Despite an unexpected power outage mid-event, we had a strong turnout, and the university representatives noted the high level of student enthusiasm and engagement. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported this event! Stay tuned for more information on our Fall Transfer Day planned for October 2023.

Skyline Students Receive PTK Regional and International Awards

Phi Theta Kappa recognizes outstanding student leadership and scholarship. This spring two Skyline students are being recognized on the regional and international level.

May Myat Chel Myint, Biology major and active PTK member will be recognized as PTK 2023 Distinguished Chapter Member at the international conference in April. Chel was nominated by the Beta Theta Omicron chapter at the end of the fall semester. The nominating BOO officers wrote in their nomination: Chel has a great eye for identifying where support is needed and goes out of her way to lend a helping hand to anyone. All in all, Chel supported many officers and chapter events in an open, proactive, and calm way, which in turn made the chapter more successful overall.

Distinguished Members are selected based on a student’s embodiment of the Hallmarks of the Society, leadership, scholarship, service, and fellowship, through active participation in their college chapter.

Jerry Hnin, Biology major and VP of Scholarship of the Beta Theta Omicron Chapter at Skyline,  will receive the Salvatore Addotta Award of Distinction from the Nevada/California Regional Alumni Association. The award recognizes students’ achievement in overcoming personal obstacles to succeed and their outstanding contributions as a student and member of their college PTK Chapter. Every year each chapter in the Nevada/California Region is able to nominate a chapter student for the recognition. The Beta Theta Omicron officer team unanimously voted for Jerry’s nomination and summarized in their nomination: Mr. Hnin stands out as an exceptional student not only for his academic achievements, but also for his deeply caring and motivating personality, which he displays every day toward his peers, college staff, and faculty.
