As a transfer student I lived at Porter College but I am affiliated with College Ten. I lived in a building dedicated to transfer students like me for my first year as a transfer student. Now I live in an apartment at College Ten with some of the people I met living at Porter College. Some things I learned as a transfer student are:
- Don't leave work until the last minute.
- Sharing a room with strangers is hard.
- There will always be another party to go to, so don't worry about missing them.
- Use the resources you have available to you.
- Seize every opportunity you can.
- Quarters move by very quickly.
