puente studentsOn October 15, 2016 over 35 Puente students from Skyline College attended the Puente Motivational Conference at the University of California Davis!  Students and faculty woke up bright and early to attend this motivational conference.  In attendance were hundreds of Puentistas from all over Northern California excited to discover UC Davis.

The conference was from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and was filled with different workshops from UC’s and CSU’s including UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, and San Francisco State.  This was a great opportunity for students to learn and explore the wide variety of opportunities students have after graduating and transferring from Skyline College.

Following the workshops, students were able to tour the UC Davis campus.  Students had the opportunity to explore the campus and learn about the vast variety of programs available to them.

After a long day at UC Davis, students returned to campus a little tired but with bigger dreams to transfer to a 4-year university.
