You probably won’t believe this, but I am transferring again! No, seriously, I actually think I will this time. Yes, I have decided to once again – for the third time – transfer universities. I previously attempted to transfer to the University of Southern Indiana and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee but was unsuccessful because of financial aid and classroom credit issues.
There are of course many things that will factor into my decision on where I will transfer to. Cost, credits, scholarships, class sizes and opportunities will play major roles in my decision.
Why? Why would I transfer schools in the second semester of my junior year of college? Well, the answer is pretty simple: I don’t enjoy what I'm learning at my current university (University of Wisconsin-Parkside). Communication is an odd major and for me, it’s not really a subject I want to study. Academically, I’ve been fine while at Parkside. My grade point average is over a 3.0 and I’ve never received anything lower than a B in any of my communication courses here.
So what do I want to learn? Well, if it isn’t already obvious on this website, I want to become a successful broadcaster. Learning about social justice, identity, and other things won’t help me improve and become a more effective broadcaster. I do take those things for granted, and appreciate the professors here who've helped me gain information in regards to those things.
And lastly, this is where I tell you where I’ll be enrolling next fall, right? Eh, you won’t get that today. That’s mainly because I haven’t fully decided yet on that special university. Right now, Marquette University sits atop my list followed by the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. For some, you might already be aware that I am a member of Marquette’s National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) chapter. Other universities will certainly come into consideration, but for now, those are the two schools.
Once the decision is made, you'll find out from me via Twitter (like 99.9% of news that is broken today), so stay tuned.
