Transferring to a new college or university can be fresh and exciting, but it can also be daunting and lonely. As a transfer student myself many years ago, I can vouch that it can be an interesting experience. You’re certainly not a freshman (and you don’t want anyone to mistake you for one), but it’s true that you are new to campus. Many students meet people and initiate friendships quickly after arriving to college. This can present a difficulty to transfer students who show up late in the game.
