TUCSON, Ariz. -- Wednesday the University of Arizona celebrated the opening of the new Transfer Student Center.

With more and more students transferring to the U of A, especially from Pima Community College, the school wanted to make the transition a little easier.

"Through the Transfer Center they're able to come to one place, ask questions, get connected to the resource they need and get connected to the people that they need," said Jeanais Brodie from the UA Transfer Student Center.

The new center is right next door to the student Career Center on the fourth floor of the Union.

And if that wasn't enough for students.

A job fair kicked-off the new school year Wednesday afternoon.

Around 30 employers showed up looking for mostly part time work from the students. While hundreds of students turned out seeking employment.
