In the weeks leading up to NISTS 2024, we're highlighting the transfer stories of this year's National Transfer Student Ambassador award winners. All four students will attend the conference in St. Louis and participate in a student panel conversation. You can read more about Emily's story and meet the other 2024 ambassadors on the NISTS Blog.
NISTS 2024 National Transfer Student Ambassador: Emily Hernandez Alzamora
In this pre-conference conversation, Emily describes her transfer journey from Salt Lake Community College to the University of Utah. She shares what it's been like to support transfer students as a campus leader at both the community college and university levels. Emily was interviewed by NISTS 2024 Curriculum Planning Committee member Tanaya Dempsey from Arizona State University.
