Transfer Fall Welcome
Hit the ground running by attending Transfer Fall Welcome. This 2 hour event consists of guest speakers, a meet and greet with our Peer Advisers who work in the Transfer Reentry Center, a raffle and a resource fair. This event is invaluable to new transfer and reentry students as it brings 30-35 campus resources to a central location to meet with students and introduce them to campus services.
This day long orientation occurs prior to the beginning of fall quarter and is specifically tailored to the questions, concerns and experiences that reentry students have. This specialized orientation attracts between 60-75 students and strives to present a realistic overview of the reentry experience at UC Davis, providing the vital information and resources students need as they begin their academic career. Topics typically covered include: the demands of the Research University; the registration process and unit load; applying transferable skills; and how to prepare for future career or educational career goals.
One of the most asked questions transfer students have when they arrive at UC Davis is how to get the most out of their two years on campus and how to make their transfer experience meaningful. Launched in Fall Quarter 2016, Transfer Take-Off is a week long series of workshops that provide an opportunity for transfers to meet other transfers and get involved early in Aggie campus life. Students engage in fun activities while also learning from experienced transfers how they can manage and maximize their time on campus.
