" I know everyone says it, but it is worth shouting from the mountain tops: Ask questions! Ask for help! Even if you are not sure what you should be asking, just check in. With an Academic Advisor, a Faculty Advisor, someone in the Transfer Center, any staff member at Cal Poly. I love when a new transfer comes in and says “well, I don’t know what I should be asking, but I wanted to check in to see if there is anything I should know”. That opens the door for a great conversation, and information sharing!"
Sabrina Canady, College of Liberal Arts - Academic Advisor
