Transfer Week will be taking place Oct. 20 to 27, giving both present and future LMC students a chance to look into their options regarding their educational future as.

According to a flier posted by Transfer Programs and Services, students will have a chance to meet with representatives from San Francisco State University on Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Brandman University on Oct. 21 from 10 to 11 a.m.; UC Davis on Oct. 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and CSU East Bay from 3 to 4:40 p.m.

Students interested in meeting with these representatives must first schedule an appointment through Transfer Programs and Services.

Also, a transfer rally will take place Thursday, Oct. 23, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., where local performing artists will be providing entertainment, and students will be able to meet with representatives from local four-year universities.

Transfer Day and College Night are scheduled for Monday, Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Indoor Quad. Current LMC students who have a desire to pursue an education above their Associate’s degree will have an opportunity to talk with four-year college representatives from around the country.

According to the LMC website, representatives from UCs such as UC Berkeley, UC Davis and UC San Diego will be in attendance, as well as many out-of-state universities including Fisk, Arizona State and Michigan State.

In addition, many private four-year college representatives will be on campus during the event. Saint Mary’s College, University of San Francisco and Academy of Art University are just a few of the options that students will have, should they decide to continue on at a private university.

Later that evening at College Night, which will take place inside the LMC gym from 6 p.m. to 8p.m., students from the local area high schools will have a chance to investigate the educational options available to them after graduating from high school — whether it is enrolling with LMC or heading straight to a four year institution.

Along with a full week of workshops and opportunities to talk with college representatives, students are encouraged to meet with members in the Transfer Center located in room CC2-225 to help any additional questions or comments they may have.

With a week full of events, this fall’s Transfer Week will provide the necessary tools and options that both current and future LMC students need to help in their continuing education.
