The Palomar Transfer Center
will be hosting a College Fair on campus from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 22 by
the clock tower.
The Transfer Center is the place to get information and counseling to transfer to a four-year university, and staffers are hosting this event to make this information more accessible to students.
Students should take advantage of this college fair so they can have their specific questions answered in person, officials said.
There will be 54 universities and colleges set up with tables in the area surrounding the clock tower. Each university will have representatives available to answer any questions students might have concerning a school.
“This is their best opportunity to talk to colleges that are out of state and private institutions,” Transfer Center Assistant Brittany Wong said.
She went on to list topics students may ask about, such as “the cost of transferring, what majors are offered at each college and campus life.”
Other activities will be taking place during the event, such as a prize wheel at the Transfer Center booth. Two different workshops will be available to help with California State University (CSU) applications and writing personal statements.
CSU Dominguez Hills, University of California (UC) San Diego and UC Santa Barbara will also be holding one-on-one appointments with students.
“Essentially our purpose is to bring (college reps) here to the campus so that (students) can use them as tool(s),” Wong said.
For more information about this event, or to make an appointment to meet with one of the three universities mentioned above in private, call (760) 744-1150 ext. 2552.
