Cabrillo College is emphasizing the importance of a good Education Plan for student success. If you set your goals for degree or transfer, you’re more likely to get somewhere – have a look at Cabrillo’s Transfer and Articulation Resources and talk with a Counselor to learn more.
Most Education Plans include a requirement for a Natural Science class and a Lab Science course. If you have not already done so, I strongly recommend trying to get into any section of the Biological Anthropology Lab (ANTHR1L) concurrently with the Introduction to Anthropology: Biological lecture (ANTHR1) to meet this requirement. Students who are enrolled in both classes tend to do better in both classes, because of the opportunity to investigate materials “hands-on” that we’re discussing in lectures. While all labs are currently fully enrolled for Spring 2013, some have very short wait lists, so you have a good chance of getting into those. Check WEBADVISOR to see if there’s a lab that could work for you. Your best chance of getting into the class is to be there at the start of class on the first day.
If you’re a serious student with an interest in transferring to a CSU or UC, you should learn about the Honors Transfer Program at Cabrillo. You need a minimum 3.3 cumulative GPA to be part of this. Honors students can participate in the Honors Research Symposium to be hosted at Stanford University May 4, 2013.
