Being a transfer student gives me a whole new perspective on things, here at MNU. I’m a new student, but at the same time I have been in college for two years! Here are just a few things I have noticed about being a transfer student from a community college.
- You walk around with your headphones in all the time.
People at community college aren’t the most social. Almost everyone there walks around with headphones in and alone. It’s almost a social taboo to have a conversation with someone else in the hall.
2. You do not mind eating alone in the cafeteria.
It is an everyday, normal thing to eat alone at community college. It isn’t the easiest place to make friends honestly. It also doesn’t help when everyone looks like they want to eat alone too.
3. You are not use to paying this much for college…
Community college is significantly less compared to every other college really. I wont give you the exact numbers I had to pay, but I will say I did not have to take out a loan for community college…I am not use to having no money!
4. You don’t mind having to walk everywhere.
When attending community college, I had to drive 25 minutes from my house to school everyday. Once there, I would have to park extremely far away from the actual campus because it is so large. So now, even walking from Colony to Dobson isn’t that bad!
5. Not knowing what year you actually are.
I get asked all the time what year I am and I never know how to answer. I give a different answer every single time I’m asked. I am as old as a junior, I am on the first year class list, and I voted for homecoming as a sophomore. So that is how I answer that question now.
6. (Bonus) Living with your best friends is an amazing thing!
I am extremely lucky that some of the best people I know live here and go to school here! While I was going to community college, I still lived at home. Now that was not necessarily a bad thing, I would much have rather lived on campus with all my friends!
To sum up, I love it here and there is no place I’d rather be!
Until next time friends.
