Transfer Alumni Spotlight


Meet Natalie Salgado!

In 2019, Natalie Salgado transferred to the University of California Irvine (UCI) as a psychology major. 

What do you enjoy about your transfer university?

I’ve enjoyed everything UCI has to offer. Their resources, clubs, organizations and programs have enhanced my college experience. The campus is beautiful and the professors/staff have been helpful and encouraging.

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

Make sure to take sometime to get to know your professors. They are a very knowledgeable and a great resource. If you’re interested in attending a UC plan on doing research. UCs are research institutions and value it greatly. Get involved as much as you can. Imposter syndrome is real, but don’t let that stop you from applying to program/opportunities that peak your interest. Most importantly, practice self-care.
