Transfer Fair gives a taste of four-year schools

Midland College students had the chance to explore what universities around Texas have to offer at the MC Transfer Fair last week.

“I really think this has been a success,” said Michael Chavez, dean of enrollment services.

Holding the transfer fair in the Marie Hall Academic Building, where students walk through on the way to class, along with email reminders and mass texts, has contributed to the success of the event, he said.

The transfer fair had “the schools most people look at in Texas,” according to MC student Kristalyn Blaylock.

Blaylock said she is a freshman in her second semester at MC and is studying theology. She has plans to transfer to Columbia University for General Studies in New York but looked around the transfer fair at what schools in Texas have to offer.

Pizza and beverages were available to students who looked at least four booths and received a ticket to cash in for food. The schools represented were UTPB, Texas Tech University, Sul Ross State University and Angelo State University, among others.Transfer1
