We want to thank the entire Skyline College community for supporting Transfer Day and Alma Mater Day on October 6, 2022. The event included 35 colleges and universities and welcomed over 175 students. Students gained valuable information to inform their transfer planning while enjoying an event that included music, giveaways, and games. Students provided their feedback that expressed their gratitude for bringing back in-person interactions with admission professionals. Admission professionals also shared their enthusiasm about the strong turnout and return to pre-pandemic levels of student engagement. 

Fall is the primary transfer period for Skyline College applicants, and the event was scheduled to coincide with UC and CSU transfer application periods. This event supported students at different points of their journey. Transfer Day helps students who are just beginning at Skyline College by engaging them in transfer planning early. It supports continuing and returning students who are defining and committing to their transfer plans. It also supports students who will be applicants and will enroll into universities by Fall 2023.

Thank you to the entire Skyline Community for all the incredible support. We are grateful to the Facilities and Maintenance team for the setup. Thank you to the Public Safety department for parking arrangements. Thank you to the Outreach Department for all their support by providing staffing to support the event. Thank you to each of you that staffed and visited the event.
