Transfer Student Support Commission

Claire Dixon

Transfer Student Support Commissioner

Hi anteaters! My name is Claire Dixon and I’m a fourth-year Psychological Science major. My pronouns are she/her/hers. I’m very excited to be this year’s Transfer Student Support Commissioner!

I transferred to UCI from Folsom Lake College in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the hardships we endured, I was able to find a community as an intern for the Transfer Student Support Commission. Since then, my love for ASUCI and passion for helping the transfer student community has grown. I hope through this position I can help new and continuing transfer students achieve their professional goals and find a welcoming community on campus. I look forward to the 2021-2022 academic year!

Office Hours: Monday 10-11 am
