Transfer Decision Dilemma
I realize this is probably a typical post from a Freshmen in his/her first Semester, but I have been really going through a tough time here.
So I currently go to West Virginia University and A journalism major. I love my classes, my professors and just hit the midterm with a 3.85 GPA. However, I just don't feel comfortable here. Many of the kids here are immature, do drugs or whatever. My roommate and I get along and can tolerate each other but he has very different motives then I do (drugs,lazy, and always has to be around girls). Now, I do drink and love to party but it seems that every kid here does drugs which isn't my thing. I have tried to go outside my comfort zone to try and meet people but many of them are just not my type.
At first, I loved this school. I was excited for more opportunities at a big school and I loved the sporting events. Being a huge sports fanatic, it was awesome. But all of those feelings disappeared about 4 weeks in. I have given it some time and it still hasn't been any better. Right now, I am thinking about transferring to Bloomsburg University for Fall 2013, but I need some help.
Bloomsburg is a smaller school and about 2 hours away from home for me, where as West Virginia is about 5 hours away from home. Homesick isn't really a big thing for me, I just feel uncomfortable here. Bloomsburg was my second choice before I chose West Virginia. I have been there for 2 weekends during this school year and had more fun there then I have here at WVU just because I was more comfortable.
Pros of WVU: Bigger School/More marketability,More Majors/Opportunities, Athletic events,
Pros of Bloomsburg: Closer to home, more comfortable,smaller classes, alot cheeper cost
Now, I don't have a girlfriend at Bloomsburg so that is not a factor at all and I know this is probably a common post but I need help pretty badly. I probably won't make a desicion for atleast another month or 2 because I want to give it time but I just want some input. Sorry for the rant!
