Transfer students get help to prepare for the Jacobs School
"You definitely don't want to have three finals on the same day," one student told an audience of 23 incoming transfer students gathered in the Qualcomm Conference Center in Jacobs Hall Thursday morning. They took note.
The students were there for Transfer PrEP, a three-day residential summer program for incoming transfers organized by the Jacobs School's IDEA Student Center. Students go to meet with faculty, teaching assistants, engineering advisers and industry. They also got lab and company tours and heard from alumni about career options.
Thursday morning, they learned about how to pick their classes and sign up for scholarships, among other things, from a group of former transfer students.
