Exactly a year ago from today, I was a completely lost student at Tarrant County College entering my second year. Coming back from a very rough summer, and still carrying that baggage into my last year at TCC was difficult. I was worried about where would I transfer too, should I just graduate with my associates, or should I just drop out of school altogether and get my mind straight.
During my Spring Semester at TCC, I decided that I was going to stay in school and further my education I came too far to quit now. My next step was where will I transfer too? After naming schools I had no interest of transferring too; my mom suggested Texas Wesleyan University.
We had a tour set up, somehow my mom mixed up dates and we arrived at the school on the wrong day and time. Admissions at Wesleyan had every right to turn us a way and reschedule another tour. Instead, they found someone to give us our own personal tour. That generous gesture had me sold!
After my tour, I knew this was where I wanted to go and finish my education. Being that I am a Radio-Television-Broadcasting major, I was fortune enough to get a job for Rambler TV as Content Producer.
As any new student finding your classes and meeting new people can be challenging. Luckily, this school is so open and generous you are bond to find someone to help you find your classes and at the same time gain a friend. Being a Content Producer, it’s my job to go out and find people. For others meeting new people will not be as easy, but there’s always a way to fix that.
There are so many organizations and groups you can join; you can check the school’s website at If you are a transfer student and want to meet other transfer students as well. The Transfer Student Advisory Board is a good place to start! They meet up every 2nd and 4th Thursday. For more information, you can contact the PresidentMariah Bosilikwa mug 2 Fauz Saheb, at
I am proud to say Texas Wesleyan is my new found home and excited for this upcoming school year.

    Great job of sharing your personal experience. Some of my life-long friends are from college; it is more than an institution of higher learning.
