Mendocino College Hosts College and University Day 2011


Mendocino College’s Career & Transfer Center will be hosting College and University Day on Monday, September 12, 2011.  The event will be held at our Ukiah Campus in the beautiful oak grove between Macmillan Hall and the Lowery Library from 10:00am to 1:00pm.  Many local and out of state colleges, universities and vocational institutions will be participating.  This is the perfect opportunity for college & high school students who are considering the possibility of transferring to a four-year university or professional school.  Representatives will be on hand to answer student’s questions concerning transfer requirements, financial aid, housing, and available majors. 


“Last year’s event was a huge success,” said Candie Dickinson, Career and Transfer Center Director.  “More than twenty universities and colleges attended and met with hundreds of college and high school students.  High school students were able to explore the option of coming to Mendocino College and then transferring to a four-year university, or going directly to a university after graduating from high school.  Our college students were able to make a more informed decision on where to apply after finishing their lower division course work.  This year students will have even more opportunities to explore higher education possibilities.”
