1. What is Transfer Weekend?
bridges Transfer Weekend is a FREE 3-day, 2-night program for newly admitted transfer students. If selected, newly admitted transfer students will TRAVEL FOR FREE to UC Berkeley for the weekend and be hosted in pairs at a local hotel.

During Transfer Weekend, prospective Cal students participate in multicultural programs, workshops, and cultural events that give students the opportunity to engage and interact with other prospective transfers and current UC Berkeley students. This weekend is an opportunity for students to establish essential social networks before they enter UC Berkeley.

2. The purpose is to:
build personal relationships with current students of color;
provide resources for underrepresented students; and,
build a sense of multicultural community and identity.

3. Who we are:
bridges Multicultural Resource Center was established when 5 student-run and student-initiated organizations formed a coalition to meet the needs of underrepresented students of color after the passing of Proposition 209 in 1996.

Today, we are a coalition of 7 Recruitment and Retention Centers (RRCs) who strive to recruit underrepresented students of color into higher education at all levels, and are committed to providing resources to retain these students.
