How a transferring university student can adjust to campus life at a new university?

<p>I'm transferring into a large university (30 000 undergrad students) ranked high in reputation (4th in the country) with a large commuter populace (12% of undergrads live on campus) with over 400 student clubs & organizations in a major city (of 750 000). If I live by myself in an apartment off-campus, how will easy will it be for me to adjust/make the transition to student/campus life?</p>

<p>(the school is the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada)</p>

<p>depends on where you came from, right?</p>

<p>That’s the million dollar question isn’t it? All the advice I ever get is make sure to GET INVOLVED! Join lots of clubs! Intramurals! Blah blah blah! Like it’s that easy. Clubs always scared me to death, and I’m awful at sports. I always had to hope that somebody sitting next to me in one of my classes was nice and would show me around and introduce me to some people. But I guess, unless you’re a very outgoing person, the transition process will always be hard.</p>
