Christmas Break

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.

    My plans for the holidays may not be exciting as some of y’all’s, but I am personally really looking forward to them! I will be taking a wintermester over Christmas break to ensure that I will be eligible to receive my Aggie ring in the spring- thanks to that pesky 45 course hours from the university rule specific to transfer students. Other than that, I am trying to find a window of time where I will be able to travel to California to visit with my family for the holidays, particularly my grandma! If you’ve got your family close by, especially during the holiday season, you’re one of the lucky ones! When I’m not working on my wintermester, you’ll be able to find me relaxing with my dog, watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas on repeat, helping my mom make tamales from scratch, and hoping for snow even though I know chances will probably be slim. I’ve had past holidays that were much busier, filled with plans or people to divide my time between, but this Christmas break will be a little different. It has a more relaxing, slow paced, feel- other than my wintermester course that is. I am looking forward to reenergizing in preparation for the spring semester so I can come back ready to BTHO the remainder of my junior year!

    I hope you all have a wonderful holiday break, and are able to spend your time doing something you truly enjoy- whether it be traveling, reconnecting with old friends, spending quality time with family members you don’t see often, starting a new tradition, or taking some time to focus on self-care. Whatever your holiday looks like, make it the best one yet!
