<p>Hi, I always like to read what other engineers have to say on this site. So I was wondering if I could get some advice. </p>
<p>I'm a transfer student signed up to go to a private, large, engineering school. Well, actually I'm going to a smaller branch campus that closer to where I live. I like the school for it's solid engineering program and the strong reputation it has in the area. But I just realized something. For social reasons, I don't think I'm going to be happy. </p>
<p>Because this is a branch campus, all the clubs and engineering societies I dreamed of joining are held at the main campus an hour away from where I am so I think it will be a lot harder to be active in them. Also, my campus is a small commuter campus, so I'm afraid it will be harder to make a lot of friends. I spent two years at community college and am worried bc the branch campus is set up very similar to a community college. I really don't want to look back at my college experience and feel like I spent 5 years in a a community college like setting. </p>
<p>My alternative is a decent sized public university just 10 minutes away from where I live, that wouldn't have the problems I described. It's not as good of an engineering school. But I like the friendly atmosphere. </p>
<p>School starts in a few weeks, so I need to decide what I'm going to do fast. Please give any advice in making my decistion! If it helps, the schools are Drexel and Rowan. I'm a girl, so maybe that's why I care a bit about the social aspects.
