How A Transfer College Student Feels Like

T stands for transfer. It also stands for terrified.

How A Transfer College Student Feels Like
Carrie Spillane

College is college so you know all what to expect. You at least been to college for a semester. You know the people who makes you comfortable and who can make your skin crawl. You know you your alcohol level intake before you get tipsy to drunk to too late to fix mistakes to blackout. You even smoke a blunt at least once and your first time you got high or not. You know what the work load is like. Show up to classes and do all your assignments cause "It Pay’s to Get A’s, But C’s Get Degrees". Whatever you have to do cause you might have to take an extra semester, a winter or summer class, or a few online classes to get caught up.

As someone who barley knows anyone at a new college you can not help to feel like a freshman. You ask where places are located and they say "next to the auditorium" and you ask "where is that?" You are afraid of getting a Freshman 15 because of all the new food places you want to try. Professors and staff ask if you are a freshman because of you barely swiped ID. Last but not lease you are in a whole new environment far from all your friends and family.

But it is the only first week so do not fret. Clubs, intramurals, and fraternity and sorority rushes will start and you will meet a bunch of new people. It does not hurt to go up to someone and complement their clothing. Talk to the people in your class and make a study buddy for when midterms and finals come.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
