Story by | View 2 comments

Students are welcome to attend the PCC Alumni Transfer Panel Luncheon from noon to 1:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 29, in the Event Center, Building 9, Rock Creek Campus.

Four PCC alumni will be on a panel to speak about their successful university transfer experience and their career paths and include Olivia Yeung (2012 PCC Diamond Alumni Award winner), Liliana Luna (now a student at Portland State University, Kyle Davis (a student at Eastern Oregon University) and Pia Veliz (Warner Pacific College student). Plus, those who attend will be entered into a raffle for a $50 university admissions application fee waiver and receive a free lunch. Representatives from Portland State University, Pacific University, Linfield College and Washington State University will be on hand as well.

This is a great opportunity for students who are considering transferring to a four-year school to hear from a group of alumni who have successfully made the transfer transition.

To attend, RSVP to Tamara Ryan at tamara.ryan@pcc.edu.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
