Prospective students scope out campus at CBU Transfer Day
Riverside, Calif. (Nov. 2, 2018) — California Baptist University hosted its final Transfer Day of the year on Nov. 2. The half-day event offered several sessions to help prospective students learn more about the benefits of becoming a Lancer.
“Transfer Day is something we have been doing for the last few years,” said Taylor Shelberg, manager of undergraduate admission events. “The whole goal of the event is to provide anyone who would like to transfer to CBU with tools to know if they are making the right decision.”
Dustin Lowe, director of undergraduate admissions, welcomed the visitors at the event’s opening session.
“Our goal is to help prospective students have a better understanding of what it is like to be a CBU student,” Lowe said. “We just answer all the different questions about transferring. Those are our goals today.”
Lowe gave attendees an overview of the CBU campus and all the activities that take place in a week. Other sessions included information on transferring course credits, academic planning and financial aid. The event also provided lunch and an opportunity for the guests to tour the campus and visit student housing in the afternoon.
Kayti Weston, a Crafton Hills College student from Beaumont, California, said she really enjoyed her experience and could see herself coming to CBU.
“I’m a sports person, so the fact that they have volleyball makes me really, really happy,” Weston said.
Rachel Payne, also a Crafton Hills College student from Redlands, California, said she would love to be a part of the CBU community.
“I definitely see myself studying here. I like the Christian background and I enjoyed interacting with current students,” Payne said.
The next Transfer Day dates are Feb. 11, 2019 and March 15, 2019. For more information click here.
