University Bound? Get Information at Allan Hancock College’s Transfer Day

Students, parents and individuals who want to learn more about attending a university, either in California or elsewhere in the nation, have a great opportunity coming up next month.

Allan Hancock College’s University Transfer Day will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5 in the college’s Santa Maria campus Student Center (Building G).

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and speak with dozens of representatives from colleges and universities in California and other states. These representatives will be able to answer questions about academic programs and majors, admission, scholarships, costs, housing, financial aid and more, and provide specific literature about their campuses.

The public is invited to attend; attendees do not need to be Allan Hancock College students.

“Anyone who is considering attendance at a four-year college or university is strongly encouraged to take advantage of this great opportunity,” said Julie Vasques, Allan Hancock College’s University Transfer Center coordinator/counselor. “This free event is vitally important in that it allows students and members of the community to meet with college reps, ask questions, explore possibilities and gather information that might otherwise require a visit to each university. It saves a lot of time and hassle when the university comes to you.”

Colleges represented will include Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo, Cal State-Northridge, Cal State-Fresno, UC Santa Barbara, UC Davis, Westmont and more.

Free pizza will be available courtesy of Allan Hancock College’s Associated Student Body Government, and prizes will be awarded throughout the event.

Questions about University Transfer Day, or transfer in general, should be directed to the college’s University Transfer Center at 805.922.6966 or 866.DIAL.AHC (342.5242) x3363.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
