UNM-LA transfer students honored

By Carolyn Gonzales

Students who transfer from UNM-Los Alamos to main campus were recently honored with a reception at the Student Union Building.

Speaking on behalf of the branch was Director Carlos Ramirez. Provost Brian Foster and Vice President for Student Affairs Eliseo “Cheo” Torres represented main campus.

Among the transfer students was Victor Caraveo, originally from Española, a senior studying mechanical engineering.

Amy Sanchez started her education at New Mexico State University, took a break from studies before attending UNM-LA, and is now a senior majoring in political science.

Marla Fowler, a junior, hasn’t broken her Los Alamos ties yet. Recently accepted to the Anderson Schools of Management, she boards on a plane twice a week to her job at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Torres told the students, “On behalf of myself and Dr. Foster, we declare you official ambassadors to Los Alamos.”

He also told them that a new scholarship has been established to help transferring students with housing costs.

Foster said that bringing together a group from a branch at main campus is a “terrific idea” and thought it may be unprecedented.
Foster said he hopes other such events take place in the future. UNM also has branch campuses in Taos, Gallup and Valencia County.
