CASP Induction Ceremony for Transfer Students | Spring 2017


Greetings CASP Scholars,

The final weeks of the Spring Quarter are right around the corner. Whether it was your first year or your last, there is a lot to do as the academic year comes to a close.  We at CASP hope you can take the time amidst studying for finals to look back and reflect on your successes, as well as your challenges. Take this time to celebrate how much you have done and how much you have grown. This issue is dedicated to supporting and celebrating you!
We also encourage you to visit the  
CASP website that includes a day to day calendar of events to help you keep up-to-date with CASP. You can find the calendar by clicking on "CASP Calendar" on the homepage.

As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns at casp@ucsd.edu, (858) 822-6740 or stop by the CASP office on the 5th floor of the Student Services Center.
