Need some advice
Hi. So I am a freshman at west chester university, political science major. In high school my first choice was Temple, but I didn't get in (reasonably so as my grades were not very good). I applied as a transfer a few months ago and got in to Temple now. I know temple is a better school and their liberal arts specifically is much better than wcu. I love wcu but I am a freshman commuter and I unfortunately don't have any "real" friends besides my good friend from highschool (who is also transferring from temple) who I occasionally talk to. (With money being tight I will still have to commute next year if I go to temple but junior&senior year I will be able to live on campus with my friend). I have a couple "friends" from classes at wcu but I never talk to them outside of our classes. I have tried clubs (college dems) but still haven't made any real friends. I feel like I do everything I can as an introvert to open myself up but it just doesn't work, and within the last couple weeks I have begun to feel lonely. I feel like I need a fresh start, especially with temple being my dream school since I was younger, but at the same time I'm unsure if I should leave wcu and thinking about it really makes me nervious. Any advice is appreciated4 replies
