What year did you graduate/transfer?
I transferred out of Oxnard College in 2021.
Where did you transfer to complete your Bachelor’s degree?
I transferred to Cal Poly SLO.
Where are you now and what are you doing?
I’m currently finishing up my last year here at SLO. I love to hit up local restaurants and hang out with my roommates when we’re not stressed about assignments.
Do you have a favorite memory from your time at Oxnard College?
Yes! One of my memorable moments back at OC was the tournament we hosted in collaboration with FYE. It was awesome seeing both faculty and fellow students get together and hang out outside the usual academic environment.
Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?
I see myself working an embedded engineering role, hopefully local to Ventura County but as long as it’s still within California it’s all good.
- Take advantage of the time you have at OC and have some fun! Get to know some people, reach out and make some friends, join some clubs, get involved. When you transfer out, someone you meet might be heading out to that university as well.
- Don’t stress over not having any internships/work experience by the time you transfer out of OC. It’ll all work itself out over time as you move up towards your degree.
- Make sure you talk to an academic advisor at least twice a semester. Also make sure the classes you are taking are aligning with the Assist.org catalog for your school. The last thing you want is to not be considered for admission because you didn’t take a class the university was asking for.
