I am a recently accepted transfer student declared as a HOD major and I am wondering if there will be a harder transition for me. From thorough research about the HOD major, I see that there is a social stigma to Peabody and HID majors. How prevalent and big is this social stigma.
I also have another question. I have a great group of friends at my current university. I also joined an awesome sorority that is not present at Vanderbilt. Would not joining a sorority also affect my transition?
I am considering transferring because I genuinely find the HOD major and tracks within the major compelling. At my present university, I don't know what major would be right for me. Transferring is a big decision, especially since I am settled at my present university. I am just scared of the social scene transition.
Also,How is the minority presence on campus, especially Asian Americans and are they assimilated well with the student body?
