What it's like to be a transfer student

Yeah! I left my old school, one of 30,000 students which had it's own zip code and am now attending a school with only 2,000 students. And I don't know the zip code. But here's what I've learned about the life of a transfer student
  1. Credits will be a pain in the butt
    I was technically a freshmen here for the first three weeks even though I was supposed to be a sophomore. After a lot of meeting with different professors and sending of transcripts things are finally almost figured out with my credits but still it's been a struggle
  2. You will get put in a shitty dorm
    "Oh...you live in Young Hall...that's rough"
  3. "Ew why'd you come here"
    Because it gave me financial aid and was small
  4. "Oh my god why would you leave your old school"
    Because my classes had over 200 people in them and also I hated it
  5. People will already have friends
    And they're not always looking to add another so you'll have to work extra hard to make some friends
  6. No one cares about transfers
    There is no orientation. Good luck figuring out your P.O box number and how to check in guests for the weekend. You're essentially a freshmen except this time you're on your own to figure it all out (but you'll figure it out)
  7. But change is good
    If you want to leave, do it. Transferring has been the best decision I've made so far in my post high school life and I wouldn't change it for the world. I'm doing what I want to be doing and taking part in activities that I think will make a difference in not only my community but my life. So if you're thinking about transferring do it because honestly why not
