College's Student Success Center Helping University Transfer Students Discover Options
WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College’s University Transfer/Associate of General Education Student Success Center is having tremendous success bringing in representatives from four-year colleges and universities to speak with students about transfer options.
Earlier this month, Thomas Giles, Catawba College’s Assistant Director of Admissions, stopped by the center to speak with students about Catawba’s programs and services. He said the college—a relatively small private school in Salisbury—has seen an increasing number of transfer students each year and would like to see even more in the future.
Patricia Baldwin, PCC’s University Transfer Department Chair, said it is important for Pitt students to have an opportunity to speak with admissions representatives from different colleges about transfer requirements, program options, athletics, local attractions and other details.
“Choosing a four-year university can be difficult,” Baldwin said. “Meeting with admissions representatives in person makes the decision much easier.”
The Student Success Center is located on PCC’s main campus in the Raymond Reddrick Building, Room 228. It is open Mondays, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Tuesday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for University Transfer and Associate of General Education (Pre-Health Sciences) students.
A listing of visiting colleges can be found on PCC’s official website. Next up will be a representative from N.C. Wesleyan on Nov. 10, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
