Representatives from more than 70 four-year colleges and universities will be at Hartnell College on Wednesday, Nov. 10, to give Hartnell and high school students as well as their parents information about transferring to their campuses.
The 19th annual Transfer Day/College Night, titled "A Vision of Your Future," will be held in the College Center from 9 a.m. to noon and 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. This year a special invitation was extended to all Salinas Valley high school juniors and their parents.
College and university representatives will meet with students and parents to discuss their academic programs, student services, and information about housing, financial aid and transfer requirements. Hartnell counseling faculty also will be on hand to provide information to local high school students planning to attend Hartnell.
Sponsored by Hartnell and Salinas Valley high schools, the event draws representatives from public and private California as well as out-of-state colleges and universities, according to Ruth McMullen, Hartnell's director of counseling, matriculation and transfer services.
"The philosophy behind the event," according to McMullen, "is to inspire and prepare students and their parents for the transition that comes when students enter college. Transfer Day/College Night attracts up to 2,000 participants annually, and is an event that parents and students look forward to each year."
