AWC University Transfer Signing Day

The Arizona Western College Foundation, in collaboration with AWC Transfer Services and the KEYS program, celebrated students at the inaugural University Transfer Signing Day on Thursday, May 4th on the Yuma Campus.  AWC students who will be transferring to a university in the fall were celebrated and recognized by officials from Arizona State University, University of Arizona, Northern Arizona University, and Grand Canyon University.  This is a proud moment for these students, their families, and Arizona Western College.

Drawings were held for college life necessities such as a desk supplies, chargers, and other fun college accessories. Family and friends also enjoyed visits from Louie (NAU Mascot) and Wilbur (UA Mascot).
