I am a freshman at an out of state college about 500 miles away from home right now. In choosing this college, I never felt truly excited about my decision. From the day I committed, to the day I moved in, to right now, mid-April of my freshman year.
Every time I return to school, I feel more and more like I do not belong here, and want to transfer home. Many adult figures in my life are saying that they also hated their freshman college experience, though. I am conflicted as to whether I should just stick it out for my sophomore year as well (even though I hate being here and am having trouble making true connections) or transfer home and figure out my situation at a community college there, and transfer to an in-state school that would make me happier.
So the bullet points of this situation are:
-Never has been excited/proud of the school
-Having trouble making friends despite trying to put myself out there
-Out of state school (so paying out of state tuiton, just to be miserable?)
P.S. I'm getting a bio/envi sci degree, and my school is not particularly known for these
.... More, that's all I can think of for now
Any thoughts on this situation? Advice on how to get through the rest of this quarter???
