One of the biggest draws to community college is the prospect of transferring to a four-year institution to save money. But for many students the latter days in high school repeat. “Where the heck do I go to college? Look no further than the transfer fair held every year right here at Arapahoe Community College.

Walking into the atrium on the first floor of your campus may be a little overwhelming to some. Rows and rows of schools all wanting to impress and get students to transfer; quite the hustle and bustle. But fret not, out of the 45 tables there, not one looked intimidating. Every single table that was interviewed had nothing but nice and encouraging things to say, and all were helpful and informative.

University of Colorado Denver administer, SK, was at ACC’s Spring Transfer Fair, Tuesday, Feb 26, 2019. SK informed students about the significance of why you should think about transferring to CU.

Nancy Carlson, former interim dean of ACC, greets people coming in with a huge smile. When asked what the biggest benefit of the transfer fair is, she says “Being able to see all your options and getting first-hand information on the school that you may want to transfer to.” From the first step into the transfer fair it seems as though everybody there wants each student to succeed.

Nancy Carlson, took a quick moment to tell us why she thinks it’s important to consider transferring, Tuesday, Feb 26, 2019. She is now helping out with special projects at ACC since August of this year.

One of the highlights of the transfer fair is the sheer variety of school to look into. From arts colleges to the naval academy, there really is something for everybody regardless of major.

For instance, Rocky Mountain College of Art has a vibrant table full of color not only in the form of pamphlets but also in Jefferey Swender, the person who talked with us about his school. “If you ever want to check us out we are located right behind Casa Bonita; in all seriousness our campus is beautiful and if you are interested in the arts we suggest you come take a look.” Swender said.

Those involved in the fair were inviting and helpful even though they knew the three journalism students talking with them probably would not be transferring to their school. Truly an inviting place once you start talking to people.

From Colorado School of Mines, Jacob Henrey awaited students to ask questions about transferring there. Jacob told us that Colorado School of Mines is one of the schools that are “very similar in class size to ACC”.

RMCA (Rocky Mountain College of Art), Colorado School of Mines had set up shop as well. When asked about why mines makes a good transfer, they claim that Colorado School of Mines is perfect for students in the stem field; and that they work closely with the GT (guaranteed transfer) program so all your credits transfer with ease. Other booths like Colorado Mountain College, Colorado University Denver, and multiple military schools were all present. The transfer fair can be beneficial to anyone looking to take that next step in their education. This event can help you.
