The college is working on better ways to manage transferring and advising, Mona Aldana-Ramirez, director of retention support services for this college and director of Foundations of Excellence, told the Student Government Association Monday.
The Foundations of Excellence is a self-study conducted last year that produced recommendations for improving the transfer process for students. This year, the Foundation of Excellence team is working on implementing those recommendations.
One idea is to revamp the transfer center to get students into the center in the Balditt Counseling Complex on the first floor of Moody Learning Center.
Better signs around campus and in Moody Learning Center are intended to increase traffic.
René Orozco, liberal arts sophomore, suggested the transfer center change every few years to make sure it is up to date.
He also thought that ‘’graduation” should be added to the title of the transfer center to let students know that they should go there for assistance.
The next SGA meeting is at noon Monday in the craft room of Loftin Student Center.
