The Process Of Transferring Colleges, As Told By A Current Transfer

I am applying to colleges as a transfer student and it can be a struggle.

college application

Whether you're a freshman in college or you're finishing up your last year, or maybe you're already in Graduate school, you must remember the process of applying to colleges and how stressful it was. Luckily for me, I decided to go to my local Community College before transferring to a four-year university.

But now, the time has come where I have to start making plans to transfer. As an English major, I have had to do intense research to find the right programs that can offer a place for me to grow and prosper. The transfer process has many steps with it, the first being applying to colleges. This step can be very tricky because various colleges have various application dates that sometimes start early and sometimes start late.

My number-one college's application doesn't even open until January which makes it a little difficult for me to plan properly.

Financial aid is probably the most important aspect of college because if there is no way to pay for college, then it is pointless to even apply to colleges.

Next, finding somewhere to live is important because you have to sleep somewhere right? The idea of transferring is terrifying for many reasons but the main reason, a new city with new people. I'm not the best at meeting new people because I tend to have terrible social anxiety that stops me. So, I've decided to leave it in God's hands for he has a plan and I just need to remember that, everyone needs to remember that.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
