Like I said in my post yesterday, I visited a college that I am looking to transfer to next year. Nobody that I met could believe I was already in college. *sigh*
So my mom and I headed to Seton Hill for the afternoon to meet with the track/cross country coach, have lunch w/ the team, and get a campus tour.
We even got our very own parking spot!
The lunch with some people on the track/cross country team was nice, everyone seemed pretty normal and friendly. The dining hall was very nice as well, lots of options! The dorms were just .. okay, but what do you expect-it is college.
Did I mention I was accepted? Well I am. The only issue is the price. The tuition is around $37,000. That is insane. My family does not get any financial aid. I am working with the coach and school to be able to get scholarships so we will see.
I don’t have a problem with Penn State (Where I go now)
So why Seton Hill?
I guess because I know they offer a better education that will challenge me.
I will be living away from home for the first time (gulp..). [Note: it is only 30 min. away]
I was recruited to be on the cross country, indoor, and outdoor track team.
It is bigger than Penn State New Kensington by 1,200 students.
So at this point, if I can get enough scholarships, I am good to transfer. But I am having mixed emotions. I love my little college now, but maybe more opportunities await me at a bigger and ‘better’ college. Of course I have been praying non stop about this. But I like all my bloggy friends opinions…
In your opinion/from your own experiences: Should I stay at Penn State or go to Seton Hill?
