The 6th annual Transfer Conference was held on Saturday, September 30. Over 150 students registered for the event and over 115 students were in attendance.
The Transfer Center offers this conference annually to provide students with access to critical resources and support services that support their transfer. It is our goal to ensure all students have the necessary information about the transfer process. Students learned how to explore career and major options and they also learned about resources and tools that are available to plan and achieve a successful transfer to a university.
Students started their day with a nice breakfast. The morning session included breakout sessions with former Skyline College students who completed their transfer journey from Skyline College to a 4-year university. A total of six Skyline College alums shared transfer tips and tricks with students. This included information about making connections with resources on campus to help make their transfer journey less complicated and stressful!
Students who participated in the event said it was “…good for students confused about process,” and that they “…loved the student panel.”
Additionally, students found the Financial Aid workshop very beneficial to them. They also learned about scholarships, grants, and financial aid tips to manage their financial aid as they transfer. Many students expressed that the conference was “extremely informative and helpful.”
Students who entered into our giveaway were able to walk away with college gear that our Skyline College Bookstore Manager, Kevin Chak, generously donated for the event! One student even won an Amazon Kindle donated by Ernesto Hernandez, the Transfer Center Program Services Coordinator. Thanks to all our donors!
This event was ultimately a great success thanks to all the supportive volunteers, faculty, and staff who helped set up and participate in the event. We extend a heartfelt thank you to all those who participated this past weekend.
