Transfer Weekend is an all-expenses-paid overnight program for Community College Transfers who have been admitted to UC Berkeley for the following academic year. Students are selected to travel for FREE to UC Berkeley during Cal Day weekend and experience the campus + the bay area, as well as receive free lodging from MRRC and bridges community.
By participating in MRRC’s Transfer Weekend, students are introduced to our mixed community and are presented with a collection of campus resources aimed to help them grow academically, professionally and personally! There are various informative and entertaining activities which help them gain insight into college life at UC Berkeley. Some of these include: critical discussions on Mixed identity, workshops on academic advising and financial resources, an all-access campus tour, a fun night exploring San Francisco, and much more!
Overall, this weekend helps build students' confidence in their transition to college by creating community among their fellow Transfer Weekend peers. Students will get an inside look on what it is like to build communities and relationships as Cal students before they decide on transferring to UC Berkeley.
