Elizabeth Monroe is a central valley native with a passion for helping students navigate higher education.  As a transfer student herself, Elizabeth understands the unique challenges faced by our valley students.  She began her educational journey at Modesto Junior College and went on to receive a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from UC Santa Barbara. She then attended Stanislaus State to earn a Pupil Personnel Services Credential.  After working as a high school counselor in San Diego, Elizabeth eventually returned to the central valley and began working with transfer populations as part of UC Merced’s Admissions Office.  Over her years with UC Merced, she served as Lead Transfer Evaluator and most recently as the campus’ Articulation Officer.  If you are a transfer student considering Stanislaus State in the Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geology, Math, or Physics majors, please feel free to reach out to Elizabeth to explore the exciting opportunities and services we offer through the STEM Success Program.

My name is Lizbeth Solis, and I am a Computer Science student. This is my senior year, and I transferred from MJC. I am currently conducting research through RISE with Dr. Koh about Human Centered Design, and with Dr. Ayat Hatem about Social Network Analysis. I love being a Transfer Peer Mentor because I can help others through the path that I already went through and try to make their transition as smooth as possible. I am super excited to meet a lot of fellow students and help them when needed.
