LondonCircle--There is no down side to contacting admission offices at those other schools and asking if they will consider you for the spring semester. If the answer is yes, you will probably find that the requirements will vary from college to college (some will want recommendations and an essay; some may want nothing but a transcript from your current college ... even if there won't be any grades on it until January). Depending on where you're applying, it's possible that they won't admit you unless they can meet your financial need as well. You'll just have to ask about that, too.
Although you may feel that you didn't choose the right college the first time around, and you're thus wise to start investigating transfer options immediately, it is also way too early to give up on your present school. It's not impossible to seek greener pastures while you concurrently make every effort to get involved where you are now, to seek out activities you enjoy and people you like to do them with you. I've known many freshmen who were unhappy in the fall who ended up loving their college by the second semester.
