YAKIMA, Wash. - Students at Yakima Valley Community College had the chance to meet with advisers Tuesday from many of the state's four-year institutions.
YVCC hosted an adviser fair for students looking to transfer to a university in Washington and another for those looking to learn more about higher education.
Jose Moran is in his second year at YVCC and says in these tough times, attending a community college make a big difference.
"So far I haven't gotten any loans so that's pretty good," he said. "I'm not in debt yet and I've managed to finish some of the classes for my program."
Moran says a two-year school is a great choice for anyone who wants to stay close to home and hasn't decided what they want to study.
"Now I can transfer anytime I would like to," Moran said.
