Transfer Services for Students

Transfer Day 2015 was a SUCCESS!

Transfer Day was a great success because of the hard work and dedication of an entire team of people. In the spirit of giving thanks, let us recognize the key people that helped to make this possible. Thank you to the Transfer Day Committee members that helped to organize the event, the maintenance staff for the perfect set-up and banner displays, and theVice President of Student Services, Kathleen Moberg, Administrators, Faculty, Counselors, and Staff for being an inspiration to our students. Kudos goes to our staff and faculty who represented by wearing attire from their alma maters.

A very special thanks to our Student Volunteers, Associate Students of Gavilan College, Peer Mentors, Puente, and RAMbassadors, who helped with set up and logistics during the day.

The college representatives were impressed with our outstanding student attendance and inquisitiveness. Transfer Day highlighted what a wonderful community we have at Gavilan!

Let’s look forward to another great Transfer Day in 2016!
