Transfer Student Spotlight: Hilda Olsen
Central Arizona College transfer student Hilda Olsen wanted to return to college because she knew she needed to obtain an education to better support herself and her children. She also wanted to set a good example by showing them that if you work hard, you can reach your goals.
As a recently divorced, single parent, Hilda chose to first go to CAC because it was a more affordable option for returning to school after a nearly twenty year absence, and felt that completing her associate degree would better prepare her for pursuing her bachelor’s degree. Returning to school as a non-traditional, first-generation student, Hilda states that “there were so many things that I did not know were even available to me,” so she sought out new experiences to help her navigate this new environment. One of the ways she became involved was by joining Phi Theta Kappa, a two-year honors society, which helped her become more connected to the school and to other students and faculty on campus.
Hilda's advice to new transfer students is to "Get involved on campus! This is probably the single most important thing you can do as a transfer student. Whether in a student organization, student leadership role, working in an on-campus job, all of these will help you to get connected to other students with a similar program of study or similar interests and hobbies. Having these personal connections and relationships will help you when you have questions or need additional help and resources. Never be shy to ask questions and ask for help; everyone on campus is here to be a resource to help you be successful."
