Transfer Alumni Spotlight


Meet Rigoberto Delgado - UCI

In 2019, Rigoberto transferred to the University of California Irvine as a history major. Now, Rigoberto is a graduate student in the Teacher Education program at UCLA. Here's what Rigoberto shared with us:

What do you enjoy the most about your transfer university?

It was a great experience to live on campus and to meet and work with so many incredibly dedicated professors. It was also great to focus my studies in one particular field while taking upper-division classes, which was so much different than taking general education courses.

What transfer advice would you give to future FC transfer students?

Before making a decision about your career choice, figure out what you care about first. Once you have a clear understanding of the things that matter to you, and what you want to see change in the world, the career choice question becomes so much easier to answer.

Don't doubt yourself and never question your ability to succeed in school. Before you know it, you'll be where you've always dreamed!
