Hey guys! Welcome back. College isn’t for everyone. You may get to college and decide you don’t like it. It’s perfectly normal and happens all the time. There are a few things you can do if you do hate college that may help.
The first thing you can do is consider transferring. I transferred schools and it hasn’t been a bad decision yet. I’m truly thankful I made the choice and came when I did.
Another thing you can do is take some time off. Whether that is a semester or a year, take some time to figure out what you really want. You will thank yourself later. Taking a break and stepping away can help you see the benefits of going to college.
Change your major. Of course no one really likes Gen Ed classes. But everyone has to take them. If you’re not enjoying the classes specific to your major though, you may need to switch to something else.
Make some friends. I know it’s easier said than done, but having friends can change your entire view on college. Sometimes people decide they don’t like college because they haven’t made any friends. That’s completely reasonable, but you have to trust that in time it will happen.
If you try these things and nothing helps then I would recommend quitting. Find something you are passionate about and pursue that. College is expensive and if you don’t want to be there you shouldn’t waste your time and money. But don’t give up until you have at least considered these things. College can be great if you let it.
