Why Did You Decide to Come to School Here?

I had a student from Calculus Circus in my office. She's a transfer student and a bit overwhelmed.

I asked her why she decided to transfer from a small liberal arts college in the north to a large university in the south. She explained that she didn't like the college she was at but that she didn't decide to transfer until late in the second semester. The deadline had passed for transferring to her home state's state university. She had a friend from high school who went here. So, now here she is.
