Inspiration Found at UC Berkeley’s MESA Engineering Day

SHPE SACNAS MESA Cal Day 2014On Friday, October 3, a group of Skyline College students traveled to UC Berkeley, joining over 100 other students from California community colleges for MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement) Engineering Day.

Activities included Personal Statement and Financial Aid Workshops, Engineering and Biology Laboratory tours, and networking with other students from as far south as Ventura.  One highlight for the Skyline College MESA Engineering students who attended was a panel comprised of recent UC Berkeley transfer students.  They described their transfer experiences and the high demand that the school has for its students; it was encouraging and inspiring for those in attendance.
