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.

    Christmas break is a time for relaxation from the craziness of the fall semester, but my craziness will not cease, just change form. Over the course of the break, I will be going on three different trips with only two days between the first and second to do laundry. My first trip leaves December 14th and is headed to the other side of the world. I am going with a group of college students from my church to East Asia for a nine day mission trip. We are going to be immersed in the culture with the sole purpose of talking to people. After I return, I have two days (Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) to unload and pack up again for two more trips, because on the 26th my family and I take our yearly trip to the coast. Yay for family traditions! This year we are going to Rockport, Texas for some good ole’ fishin’ and relaxin’ and Christmas decompressin’. As my family leaves Rockport to head back to Austin, I head to Houston to meet up with my boyfriend’s family and embark on an 18 hour road trip up to Colorado Springs for a family wedding. I will also be experiencing REAL SNOW for the first time… Whoop!

    …Now I can breathe. Even though my Christmas break is jam packed of travel, I am beyond excited to see new places, meet new people, and do things I’ve never done before. It’s going to be a crazy break, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
