Believe to Achieve

We recognize that every transfer students' experience is different, however, we know that many transfers face some of the same challenges as they transition into the university. This blog was created for transfers by transfers to share TIPS and insight on having the best semester you can at Texas A&M University.

    You must be less like the coyote and more like the roadrunner. This sounds like something Yoda might say, but many people don’t really understand what this phrase means (I didn’t either at first). While this is not a Yoda quote, it does still teach an important life lesson.


    The roadrunner can run through walls and beat the coyote because he believes in himself and his mission; whereas, the coyote doesn’t have that same drive and ambition so he often falls flat on his face.

    It’s only three simple words, but they say so much. It’s about learning from mistakes and moving on from failures, about challenging yourself and trying new things. Sometimes the best lessons come from failures and mistakes, because you learn that the way you’re doing something isn’t the right way or the best way. You must fail before you can succeed, because failure will close the doors that aren’t right for you and lead you to something better.
    Applying these lessons to your college career:

    College is the time to put yourself out there both academically and socially. It’s about building relationships with your peers, professors, and potential colleagues. It’s about learning what you like and what you don’t. It’s ok to make mistakes, have a rough semester, or even change majors, because from failure you learn.
