 We asked students to share with us how they would describe their Transfer Bridge experience:

“Transfer Bridge gives a deeper understanding of Cal Poly and what they offer in order to ensures student’s success” ​

“After completing the three-day program event, I felt more knowledgeable of the available resources in CPP. In addition, the program gives the feeling of being welcomed and makes us know that we are not alone in our transition from community college to a university. Thanks to the TB event, I realized that I was not the only one feeling overwhelmed about my classes and registration deadlines. The TB staff address topics related to financial aid, counseling, and internships. All the content discussed in those three days gave me the big picture of what to expect once the semester would begin and that made me feel more prepared.”​
