30 October 2015

Hear from former BCC Students that successfully transferred to UC Berkeley. We have lined up SIX BCC Alumni that will be here today to talk about their experiences in filling out their transfer apps, themes they included in writing personal statements, finishing up their course work at BCC and acclimating to the learning environment at UC Berkeley. Even though all of the panelists are all Political Science majors their collective insight should prove valuable for ALL students looking to transfer. This should be a fun and informing event.
