7 Signs You Should Probably Transfer

To transfer in, one must transfer out.


Most of the time students get to the point where they want to transfer, and I don't blame them. Transferring is the one word no school ever wants to hear unless it's "transferring in," but to transfer in, you must transfer out. Here are a list of signs on when it might be time to transfer:

1. You're not happy. You start school thinking, "Oh yeah, I really love this place, it's perfect for me," but as the semesters pass and your smiles turn to frowns, it might be time to transfer. You need to be happy with where you go to school, in all aspects of the word. You need to love your professors, your friends/roommates, your colleagues, the surrounding environment, and most importantly, your well-being. If you're not happy, it's a hell of a lot harder to learn and retain information.

2. You're ready for change. Do you ever get tired of looking at the same old thing? The same professors, the same buildings, the same boring dorm bedroom walls? I know I do. It's hard to want change until something or someone makes you realize how much you want it.

3. You've been screwed over. This happens to many students in some way while in school. They'll get screwed over by a professor, a friend, housing, a sport, or anything really. Sometimes it happens so much that you just need to say, "screw you," back and move on.

4. You want to be far away. Sometimes you just want a big change, like change of state. I know I live in the same county as my school, and it was a dumb decision to move onto campus. I wanted freedom from home, but should I have done it 20 minutes away? I once was a commuter, and I know I got sick of driving back and forth every day.

5. There's a better option. You look at other schools, kind of like window shopping, and you realize how much better another school is for you. You like the campus, the professors, the class sizes, or even for more personal reasons like learning disabilities. If they offer your program and it's taught better.

6. They have more activities. I know that there's nothing to do in Berks county without having to pay at least a bit of money for it, and what good is that to a broke college student? I gave up one of my favorite things when I decided to come to my school, and that was watching football on a Friday night (or Saturday in the case of college football). It hurts, but I did it.

7. Bigger is sometimes better. Sometimes bigger is better, and that's the case with me. I wanted to go to a much bigger school, but ended up at a glorified high school. It sucks when everyone knows everyone and what everyone has or hasn't done during their time spent on campus. No one needs to know your life story, and you don't need to know everyone.

These are just 7 signs that may be beneficial to help open your eyes. I know that I have most, if not all of these, and I'm ready for change. Who's with me?

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
