Hi all. I am completing the first semester of my junior year, and my first semester at a 4-year university. I went to community college for two years, and was excited to start life at a "real school." The problem is...I don't like this new university. In fact, I hate it (except for a few friends I've made). I feel like I've made an awful mistake in coming here. I don't feel at home, but, even worse, I don't feel challenged...at all. Isn't college supposed to be some of the most introspective years of your life? Well, I'm not getting any of that.
So my question is this. Is it advisable or even possible to transfer after I've already transferred? To put it in perspective, I will not be done with my degree in 2 years (because so few of my classes from CC transferred correctly), so next year will basically be a continuation of my junior year. I live in California, and am in the CSU system. I am thinking of trying to go to the UC system. Any thoughts? Advice? Words of encouragement? Thank you in advance.
