What are transfer students saying? 

Emilie Johal, Design Major, Art History Minor
Expected graduation date: June 2020

Where were you transferred from?
Las Positas College in Livermore, CA

How easy is it to find research and internship opportunities on campus?
I would say that if a student sets a goal to find an internship and works on making progress towards their goal every week they will find an internship that fits them. It's about staying motivated, keeping an open mind and cultivating connections.

What advice would you give incoming transfer students?
My advice for incoming transfer students is to spend time taking care of both emotional, spiritual and physical health. Success in your classes will come along with you taking care of yourself. I wish I would have known that grades are not more important than developing friendships and having hands on experiences.
