CLARKSDALE – Sophomore Tigers will be given the opportunity to learn more about their options after Coahoma Community College and exciting opportunities available at dozens of colleges and universities during Sophomore Transfer Day, scheduled from 9 a.m. until noon Wednesday, Oct. 14, in the Marion Reid Gym.
Organized by the Division of Academic Affairs, the event offers upcoming CCC graduates the opportunity to gain information about topics such as academics, campus life, scholarship and financial aid at top 4-year institutions across the state and region. In addition to the important information they’ll receive, Tigers in attendance will also have the opportunity to vie for door prizes and gifts.
“We invite these institutions in the Fall of each year so that our students graduating in the Spring can have time to continue to tie up loose ends and do what they need to do to meet the transfer requirement for the universities,” said CCC Academic Counselor Yolanda Morton. “I think it’s a great opportunity for the students to just really have one-on–one interaction with these recruiters who are really instrumental in helping the students have a seamless transition.”
Nursing and other healthcare majors as well as members Phi Theta Kappa are especially urged to attend, Morton said.
“Our Phi Theta Kappa students will find that every single university we have coming to visit has excellent scholarships for those students. Also, we’re encouraging our nursing majors to come out because we have a number of universities attending that’ll have nursing and other health science related programs,” Morton said.
CCC Academic Counselor Lashundra Harris said the event is also an opportunity for students to see what’s available before they make their final decision.
“Some students may have in mind where they want to go, but this gives them the opportunity to be exposed to other opportunities that could affect their decision,” said Harris. “Early preparation can make all the difference. It’s important for students to know what they need and what requirements they must meet in order to transfer, so that’s a great benefit of this event.”
