035: Should I Transfer to Another School? with Joe Golonka

Should I stay or should I go now?

Joe Golonka, a senior at Penn State University, started his college education at Bloomsburg University, leaving Bloomsburg after his sophomore year.  In our conversation he breaks down his reasons for leaving Bloomsburg and offers suggestions to students considering a similar move.

Four questions to ask yourself if you’re thinking about transferring:

  1. Does the school’s approach to teaching match my approach to learning?
  2. Do my classmates share my values or my approach to life?
  3. Can I get a better education elsewhere?
  4. Do I have the courage to make a change?

Joe also provides perspective on education provided outside of the classroom and insights into the transfer process.  He closes with some advice to people considering transferring, especially depending on your motivations and expectations.
