Meet your Sixth College Transfer Senator!
Hello! My name is Rebecca Caputo. I am a transfer student from Saddleback College and your Sixth College Transfer Senator. What is that and why should you care? I am your representative on Sixth College Student Council (SCSC) and on the All Campus Transfer Association (ACTA). These organizations help to coordinate events, programs, and campaigns that benefit students in some way or another. I want to do the best job I can advocating for the needs and wants of transfer students, like yourself. However, the only way that I can do that is with your help.

Last quarter, I worked on creating an organization named STORCS (Sixth Transfer ORganization and Commuter Society) dedicated to helping the sixth community. More information about this organization and how to get involved will be coming soon. This quarter, I want to be more involved in events on campus in order to meet all of you and learn what you want from your college experience.

If you ever want someone to have lunch with, I will be holding office hours at the 
Sixth College Commuter Lounge (1st floor of Pepper Canyon Hall ) on Wednesdays from 12-1pm . Come by and say hi!
