MURRAY, Ky. — Just before March Madness begins, West Kentucky Community and Technical College President Barbara Veazey and Murray State University President Bob Davies will join forces to promote another March event — Transfer Madness, a free statewide online transfer fair.

On March 11, during WKCTC’s Job and Transfer Fair, the college presidents along with Dr. Brian Van Horn, dean of regional academic outreach at MSU, and WKCTC transfer students will share about Transfer Madness and various transfer opportunities. The special presentation begins at noon in Haws Gym on the WKCTC campus.

Media representatives are encouraged to attend.

Information about Transfer Madness

Transfer Madness, which is set for March 26 from 1–7 p.m. (Central), is statewide transfer fair held entirely online for current KCTCS students preparing to transfer to a four-year college, high school students planning to attend a KCTCS college in route to a four-year degree, or even non-KCTCS students looking to transfer to another college.

Students will be able to chat live with representatives from more than 20 Kentucky public and private universities, as well as WKCTC and the other 15 colleges in the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS).

During the fair, all registrants can download e-brochures, videos and podcasts and have the chance to win prizes such as an iPad, a basketball signed by Coach Calipari and Coach Pitino, waived college application fees and scholarships.

KCTCS will host a Twitter tournament, in NCAA March Madness tournament fashion, pairing each of the 16 colleges to “play” against each other by tweeting about Transfer Madness. Rules and prizes will be tweeted publicly in the days prior to game play set to begin the third week in March. Interested participants will tweet with @KCTCS.
