Week of October 25, 2021


October is Transfer Month!

On Tuesdays in October, we invite faculty and staff to proudly wear their Alma Mater, or shirt from the university of their choice, to promote transfer options and share their experience at the university with students. For virtual learners, you may also use a background of your Alma Mater or university logo in the Zoom background and/or any other platforms that we meet with students virtually. For more information on Transfer Month, visit the Transfer Center website.

Students may drop-in to chat with the 65+ University representatives from in-state and out-of-state universities.

Zoom Link: 

The featured speaker is Kristi Longoria. Kristi’s path through STEM began at a local community college and transferred to SFSU as part of the College of Science and Engineering and graduated with a BS in Applied Mathematics with a concentration in Physics. It was hard, super hard. At times it was almost-didn’t-make-it, kind of hard. But what she took away from that was really wanting to work in Student Services to ensure that students like her, whether it was in STEM or not, understood that this path to and through college is not an easy one. In her current position, as SparkPoint Coordinator at Cañada College, Kristi helps students address some of the financial challenges and help set financial goals.
