I think everyone who reads my blog will remember my post about possibly transferring colleges. I got so much awesome advice. But I need more. Or just opinions. So here it goes.
-I currently commute (finishing my freshman year) to Penn State New Ken and I do like it but it doesn’t have too much to offer in the way of activities/opportunities/athletics/spirituality.
-I applied and was accepted to Seton Hill, which is about 30 minutes from my home. It is a bigger college but also more expensive. [Think $37,000] Here is the update *they decided to lower my tuition (through athletic scholarships) down in the $20,000’s.* Which is still crazy.
-Seton Hill has a lot to offer in the academic department, athletic department (cross country + track) , and with activities. But they are a Catholic university and I’m Christian. It’s kind of a big difference buttt I would still be able to attend my church since Seton is only 30 minutes from my house.
-Now another update: I am also looking into a Christian college in WV. Ohio Valley University is a tiny college, but I know it has the same beliefs as my faith and I love that. They are also willing to offer me scholarship money which will make tuition around $14,000. That is doable but I don’t really know their academic reputation and the school is about 3 hours away.
-Other options I have looked into: Joining the Navy reserves (don’t judge!), going south for college (like GA, TN, FL) because it is a lot cheaper, and transferring to PSU main which is about 2 hours from me.
Soooo, what do ya think?! Advice.. opinions?
