This was CSUN’s second consecutive celebration of the nationwide event. The event kicked off on October 17th with the Transfer Breakfast. Students from all over campus were invited to Thousand Oaks Room with staff from the Badge Project to mingle over coffee and sandwiches.
On the 20th, the “Life After CSUN: A Transfer Alumni Panel” was held, where transfer student alumni Jeremiah Lyn Susas, Dianna Alvarado, Passant Shaker, Arin Alexander, and Edlin Labate—all members of the Badge Project’s first cohort—shared their stories of struggle, resilience and strength as transfer students at CSUN.
They also shared their experiences on how they reached their current point in their careers.
To the wrap up the week-long event, the Transfer Mixer and Game Night were held on the 22nd to let CSUN transfer students meet with and mingle with their transfer student fellows.
This year was the second time the Badge Project hosted National Transfer Week at CSUN. Moving forward, the Badge Project aims to increase collaboration efforts to bring greater visibility to the transfer student community at CSUN.
