Transferring Colleges


It's okay to want to transfer colleges. If you are not happy with the selection that you've made, you don't have to stay there. Even though I am grateful for the people that I've met during my freshman year of college, I still feel the need to transfer. When deciding whether or not to transfer, don't base your decision on the people that you've met. You're going to meet great people regardless of which college you attend. Instead, focus on the classes, the environment, and your gut feeling. For me, I thought that the classes at my college were not rigorous enough and it reminded me too much of high school. The environment reminded me of high school too. I felt like nobody was very social, everyone kept to themselves, and the student population was very small too. I kept seeing the same people every day but there was not any interaction happening. I also went with my gut feeling. I've learned that your gut feeling is usually correct. If you wake up and are not excited, if you get done with classes and feel unmotivated, and if you sit in your dorm with nothing to do besides homework, then these may be telltale signs that you are not at the right place. After spending a semester at my current college, I've gained enough experience to know that my heart doesn't belong here.
