Transfer day nears

Over 20 schools to attend event

On April 17 over 20 colleges and universities will be visiting LMC as the Transfer Center hosts Spring Transfer Day.

As the spring semester comes to an end, getting the right information about transferring to another college might be furthest from your mind. With so many different colleges in and out of state, it is hard to know which one is the best for you.

“We are planning for all of the activity to happen in the outdoor quad,” said Transfer Center Coordinator Adeirawo Origunwa. “So far we expect the weather to cooperate with us.”

“Late in the afternoon we will also host a workshop for students to get to know more about private universities,” Origunwa said. “Representatives from John F. Kennedy University, Fisk University and the Experience UC Berkeley Transfer Program will be representing the workshop.”

All activities will be at the Pittsburg campus.

“We do try to have workshops here,” said Services Coordinator Sharon McLean, who works at the Brentwood center. “Recently, Brandman University started setting up an information booth.  CSU East Bay also sets up info booths regularly and will meet with students with an appointment.”

“One big component we have are bus tours,” McLean pointed out. “The information is on the website and in the transfer newsletter.”

Origunwa advised that having a printout of your unofficial transcripts could help to ease the process. “In some cases students could even be talking to admissions officer who actually approves applications,” he said.

Remembering to apply a full year in advance to your school of choice can be daunting, but the Transfer Day can help students with any information they need to transfer to a four-year college.

Any further information can be found on the LMC website, or just drop into the Transfer Center in room CC2-225.
