A Change of Plans: I Want to be Closer to Home

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been communicating with Virginia State University because I’m planning to transfer there in the spring semester.

I made this choice because I would like to be closer to home, especially because I commute. Virginia State is also a good school, and it’s about 25 minutes from my home. Right now it takes me about 1 hour and 15 minutes to get to school every day from where I live. The drive isn’t so bad in the morning, but in the afternoon there is so much traffic.

I’ve decided that Longwood University isn’t the place that makes me happy, and it’s not what I expected. In the beginning, I was so happy to become a part of the Lancer family, but as weeks went by I realized what really makes me happy and that there are other things I wish to do.

I’m excited about being closer to home, and I can’t wait to discover what opportunities I may come across in the future.
