I graduated from Mission College in Spring 2016 with an A.S. in Business and transferred to UCSD for the Fall 2016 term. I found a community at Mission with other students who were just as motivated to transfer to a university as I was. I'm so grateful for the people I've met - including all the amazing faculty and staff at the school that helped me reach my journey.
