Cañada Students Explore College Options
through University Visits
On October 14,
22 Cañada College students attended Cal Engineering Day at U.C. Berkeley.
Despite the rain, it was a very successful University Visit. Students learned
about the many engineering majors at Cal and heard from Admissions
representatives and Support Services Directors.
They visited the labs, and heard personal stories from community college
students who are now at Cal.
The following day, October 15, Cañada students attended Preview Day at CSU,
East Bay. The day began with a guided campus tour where students walked through
student dorms and toured the Academic and Student Services buildings. The
students learned about student life, clubs, and support services in the
University Showcase. They met with staff
and faculty from various academic departments during the Academic College
Welcome session. They had the
opportunity to attend workshops regarding admissions, transfer requirements and
Student Equity & Success Programs (SEAS). The day ended with lunch in the
Pioneer Heights Dining Commons.
October 22, a group of sleepy, dedicated students met at 6:15 a.m. to UC Merced
to attend Preview Day for the School of Social Sciences, Humanities and
Arts. The day began with a Welcome
followed by presentations from faculty.
Students went on their separate ways to attend presentations from
individual Academic departments, Student Services, Financial Aid, and Transfer
Admissions 101. UC Merced arranged for a
special campus tour led by a Transfer Student Ambassador. The students enjoyed
lunch in the Dining Center before heading back to the Bay Area. University
Visits are funded by the ¡ESO! and MESA grants as well as the Center for
Student Life and Leadership Development Vending Commission.
