Transfer Student

Hey everyone! I am transferring to EIU this next fall, and though I am sooooo excited, a part of me is worried.

I worked full time and went to school at night at the community college, which is why it took this long to transfer. So, I am 24 and a Junior going into English with a teacher cert.

Anyone here had any experience transferring, or being an older student? Though I am super outgoing, and hopefully going to be placed in Stevensen, I am worried about making friends. I guess what I want to know is if it is easy to make friends around campus? Especially if you haven't been there since Freshman year. Everyone seemed friendly enough when I went for my debut, and I am hoping that won't change?

Any thoughts on the matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
