Fourteen different colleges were represented at the Transfer Fair yesterday in the Calice Building atrium. Students met with representatives from Binghamton University, SUNY Cortland, SUNY Oneonta, SUNY Delhi, SUNY Oswego, SUNY Morrisville, Alfred State University, SUNY Polytechnic Institute, SUNY Buffalo, SUNY Brockport, University at Albany, Clarkson, SUNY ESF, and Utica college.
Students took advantage of the opportunity to ask about majors offered at each school, what the school does to help transfer students, as well as information on costs of tuition for transfer students. Briana Alford, career coach in the Career Transfer and Bachelor Partnership program stated…
“I think this event is helpful for Suny Broome students because they’re getting to that point where they’re asking, “where do I want to transfer.” or “where do I want to go?” COVID kind of put us in this funk of education. This gets students pepped up and excited about education again… that face-to-face communication is key.”
Valerie Carnegie, the chair of the Career Transfer and Bachelor Partnership department described the importance of yesterday’s face to face event…
“Students can come here and see all these great opportunities offered at schools they can transfer to.”
If you missed out on the Transfer Fair, there is information on college websites for transfer students, where you can schedule a time to talk to a college representative for that school. Transfer Fair day is the cumulative day for many schools’ representative booths, however there are other days on campus where one or two schools may come to set up a booth, that information can be found on the campus calendar.
