This week: university transfer fair and club fair

Students interested in transferring to another school in the Dallas area, another part of Texas or outside the state can find out about their options at the Spring University Transfer Fair. The event takes place today, Tuesday, Jan. 24 from 1 to 4 p.m. in the El Paso Lounge on the Richland campus. 

Representatives from some 60 public and private universities will be attending to answer questions on a variety of topics. Some of the participating institutions include University of Texas at Arlington, the University of Texas at Dallas, University of North Texas, University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University, Texas Woman’s University, Texas Tech, Stephen F. Austin, Dallas Baptist University, Southern Methodist University, University of Oklahoma and many others. 

“It’s never too early to start planning for your transfer,” said Kimberly Herman, Richland transfer coordinator. Herman encourages students take advantage of the transfer fair. Everyone is welcome to come and go between classes and meet with institutional representatives.  

Attendees can find out about transfer requirements, majors offered, school locations, the cost of attendance, transferrable classes and more. Information will also be available about transfer scholarship opportunities.  

Students are encouraged to come with questions. Those who talk with a minimum of four school representatives and get their tickets signed qualify for free popcorn and will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win some cool Richland “swag.”
