Some students find that they need to transfer to find the right school for them, but the transition from one school to another isn't always so smooth. Watch and listen to these stories from students persisted through the transfer process.

Nicki’s #WeBelongInCollege Story 

Nicki found her passion, but to pursue it, she had to transfer to a college that offered the major she wanted to pursue. But her parents didn't support of her decision, so she figured out how to transfer on her own and learned a lot in the process. 

Shannon’s #WeBelongInCollege Story

 

I attended a university my freshman year that wasn’t a good fit for me. I struggled to feel like I belonged and felt lonely. I couldn’t find people I connected with and was quickly drifting apart from my childhood best friend who was my roommate. There were moments when I wanted to give up and felt like the traditional college experience just wasn’t for me. I decided to transfer schools after that year and ended up loving the rest of my college journey at my new university. College is a huge life transition and it is normal to feel a little lost in friendships or in your own identity. Sometimes, like me, your original college decision may not work out as planned. But I would encourage everyone to not give up. Every university will offer a unique experience and sometimes transferring is necessary to find the best fit for you! #WeBelongInCollege
