5 Things That Happen When You Transfer From a Small School to a Big School

Transferring schools is a challenge within itself, however when you go from attending a small private school to a large public university there can be a few extra obstacles.


1)There are people everywhere. Like literally the campus is infested with humans.

2) The Campus is ridiculously massive. You might want to google map your classes before the first day.

3) ACTIVITIES! Sports are a thing. Clubs, frats, sororities are everywhere. Yeah there were clubs and stuff at your last school but nothing compared to this!

4) Get used to waiting in line for everything. Big school, more people, and longer lines!

5) Get ready to meet so many amazing people! Bigger schools have more diversity and more opportunities for you to socialize!
