Christopher Urquilla

El Camino College graduate Christopher Urquilla (class of 2015) admits that he wasn’t the most dedicated student while in high school. But after watching a friend succeed in ECC’s Honors Transfer Program (HTP), he knew he wanted follow the same path. After graduation, he enrolled in El Camino College and the HTP, got serious about studying and now attends UCLA with plans to attend medical school one day.

“The Honors Transfer program allowed me to take tougher courses and challenge myself,” said Christopher, a sociology major who graduated from Hawthorne High School in 2013. “I thought it would be so complex to transfer, but Honors Transfer Program staff members help along the way.”
