Hello everybody, let me provide a quick bit of background info. I have just finished up my freshman year of college at Iowa State University after originally studying chemical engineering. After a rough year, I decided to switch my major to Environmental Science.
My experience and time at Iowa State was not a good one. I did not really branch out and make any friends, and I spent most of my time in either my room, or hanging out with a friend from high school. I don’t know if all of this was due to covid restricting and limiting things, but I felt that the experience was subpar.
I am from the Chicago area and that is why I am considering of transferring to UIC to pursue a degree in environmental science. However, after struggling to make friends this past year, I am worried that this will be even worse at UIC since majority of the students commute.
If you guys have any insight to the program at UIC, let me know. Thanks
