3 Pros & 3 Cons of Being A Transfer Student

I recently transferred schools. Here are some pros and cons I've faced so far!

Pro 1


If you finished your associates degree like me then you are able to just go ahead and jump into all your courses intended for your major! Which is great because that means only about *two* more years until you have a degree! (But let's be real it will probably take three years) There's nothing wrong with being optimistic though!

Con 1


When joining clubs or organizations you can feel out of place or really old because most of the other students in them might be freshmen. It can be a little awkward at first, but don't let that stop you! Make the most out of your two-ish years!

Pro 2


You already have study habits down and know the basis of how college courses are normally run. It's like community college was test driving a car and university is buying the car and driving it everywhere!

Con 2


If you don't live on campus it can be very difficult to make friends. So you feel odd trying to make friends and asking for people phone numbers. Especially those in your class and you can't seem to remember their names.

Pro 3


Moving away from home and into your own place. Finally, you get to make the rules and stay out however late you want to! You can do really anything you want! Walk around naked, eat all the junk food and get fat, eat in your room, stay up until 4 am (because why not). The list goes on and on and on!

Con 3


Oh crap, you have your own place...

That means bills, grocery shopping, driving myself places, doing my own laundry, cleaning my room and dishes. Now you SO much more to be responsible for, is this what they call adulting? If so, I don't want to be an adult anymore. I miss my mom, SOS.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
