Transferring colleges can be one of the most difficult decisions a student makes. Not only are you switching schools, but you are moving away, leaving your friends behind and starting somewhere completely different than where you came from.
I decided to ultimately transfer to IUPUI because it was a more cost effective option in terms of what you are truly getting out of being on campus (amenities, education, etc.). I also wanted to move to an area that had opportunities for me to broaden my professional experience in a more diverse way. Being at IUPUI has allowed me to blossom into a more mature adult, ready to take on bigger challenges.
I applied to several universities before finally choosing to transfer to IUPUI. If I am being honest, the decision wasn’t that difficult when looking over my “pros and cons” list. IUPUI, though connected to all the Indiana University campuses, stood out to me simply because of its ability to have a unique identity amidst a bustling city.
IUPUI was able to offer a location flourishing with opportunity for growth, more detailed and specific majors and minors and a chance to truly put your education into your own hands. IUPUI was also the first university to send me my acceptance letter, which guided my decision.
When looking at new universities, there were three specific qualities that I was looking for. IUPUI hit everything on my list and more.
