Everyone always seems to ask me why I transferred colleges. Well here you go:

My decision to transfer from Regis University to California Lutheran University was not an easy one.

The summer between my freshman and sophomore year of school, I just knew something wasn’t right in going back to Colorado. I felt empty and alone at Regis even though I had so much going for me there. I was on the Dean’s List every semester and set to graduate a full year early. I had jobs lined up for me, yet I still felt unsatisfied. I knew I wasn’t reaching my full potential as a Christian.

Then, my paternal grandmother passed away. Losing her was the hardest thing I have ever gone through. It was a quick loss--3 weeks from the time she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer to the day she left to be with the Lord.

When I got back to Regis that fall semester, I immediately knew I needed to come home. Twelve days into the semester, I submitted my application to CLU without having even talked to anyone at the school.

Once I was admitted, there was no turning back. I shut down immediately at Regis. I had professors begging me to stay, saying I was the star of their program. Even though I would not have had such a difficult time with the post grad life at Regis, I know I made the right choice.

The friends I’ve made, my family being close by, and the experiences I’ve had were all worth it. The loss of one beautiful soul lead me to find so many miraculous gains.
