While I don't have experience transferring schools, I don't think the adjustment is different from going to an out of state school straight from high school. You will be in a new place with new people and experience new challenges just like everyone else did. The keys to success are the same:
- Set a good routine and have the discipline to stick to it
- Push yourself outside of your comfort zone, whether it is starting a conversation with someone you don't know or joining an extracurricular activity with which you aren't familiar
- Be active and pursue programs, organizations, or service opportunities that interest you
- Recognize that you will make mistakes and some days will be challenging - have the grit to endure hardship; doing so builds character
I hope this helps! Good luck to you - don't hesitate to reach out if you need to.
