The RVWJC: My First Week as a Transfer

Welp, school is back in session. You know what that means: exams, quizzes, new people, lots of reading, new stressors. I started my junior year as a transfer student at UNT this week, and I was both very ready and not ready at all.

I spent 2 days before the first class day finding my way around and researching what I needed to know about dining, the campus layout, where my classes would be, and organizing my room.

My Last Year at Community College

My dreams are coming true! But not without hard work and determination. A few months ago, I started an internship as a writer for the college website College Xpress.

I sent my first post, “5 Things I Learned My Last Year at Community College,” in March. My editor loved the idea, and apparently, she wasn’t the only one. A month later, she sent me an email that the editorial team would like to feature my article in the magazine, Transfer Colleges and Universities, later this year! I was floored.

So that’s it! My first blog post for my internship, soon to be published in a national magazine, is now available in blog form. I am so excited to share this with everyone I know because it’s a milestone in my career path toward print journalism. Link below!!
