Transfer Day 2012

Students, faculty, staff, management, alumni, and friends, I am excited to invite you all to attend tomorrow’s Transfer Day in which we are welcoming over 80 regionally accredited colleges and universities to our campus.  Our students come to Saddleback College with many aspirations and a great deal of them seek to transfer on to our partner colleges and universities.  This is a vital component of our college mission and one of our top priorities.  You may recall that a couple of years ago the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges commended our college for creating a positive transfer culture on our campus.  We would like to expand our transfer culture by asking YOU to get more involved with transfer day by doing three things tomorrow:

  1. Please wear an article of clothing that represents your personal alma mater or from a college or university that you recommend;
  2. Please visit the quad between 10am and 1pm and stop by your alma mater if present and say hello to the representative, and maybe even tell some students why you endorse that institution; and
  3. Please encourage students to attend Transfer Day!

The following colleges and universities will be in attendance:

University of California

*UC Berkeley *UC Davis *UC Irvine *UCLA *UC Merced *UC Riverside *UC San Diego *UC Santa Barbara *UC Santa Cruz

2011 Senior Day Scavenger Hunt

Senior Day is a wonderful opportunity for high school seniors and their parents to learn about the outstanding programs and services offered at Saddleback College, where student success is our top priority. I look forward to seeing our future students on campus at Senior Day.

Saddleback students, faculty and staff should be aware that campus will be busier than a typical Thursday and should adjust their schedule accordingly.
