Hey everyone. I need some advice|
For those of you who went to college, did you ever transfer? If so, why? From where to where? Any other details?
I'm a freshman in college, I've been here for about 2 months. So far I've made very few good friends.. I don't have much of a close social group, just lots of acquaintances. I don't have a problem finding people to hang out with, study with, or eat with, but I don't feel very comfortable with them. I'm not finding much to do in the area, short of getting high or drunk. I'm also not enjoying my classes as much as I'd hoped, and I've skipped class more times than I'm willing to admit. High school was very easy for me, so I'm confused by how difficult I'm finding college, and how dumb I feel. On top of all this, the tuition here at my school is sky high, and I don't know if I'm getting my money's worth. I like my school, but I feel I could be happier elsewhere and am considering looking into a school close to home (which is an hour and a half from here), but I'm afraid of getting stuck in my hometown/area. Everyone here seems so settled and comfortable already, and I'm just..not. I'm just a bit disappointed by this whole thing because I was so sure this was the right school for me, but now I'm not so sure. Obviously I have to give it more time, and I must make this choice for myself but I'd definitely like to hear others povs.
So, what should I consider before making a decision to transfer?
