Applying to college is difficult, even more so if you’re a transfer student. As someone who’s been through this process, the good people at the CAD wanted me to share my story. So here are some of my personal tips for transferring successfully:
As a former student of the Academy of Bard College at Simon's Rock, this is my second year on the Simon's Rock campus. Although the Academy very often partakes in many of the weird habits and mass hysteria closely associated with any Simon's Rock lifestyle, we were separated enough to view and mentally record the happenings of the college students without a full investment, but with a personal understanding.
That being said, I have found myself, over the past few months of “college-life” continuing that mindset of frequently remarking on the trends of the college, as a student of it. This is something to which I haven't any authority and yet, will likely continue to do. So, on the off chance you do think my analysis makes sense to you, I'm going to write about it. With this, I hope to institute any changes I might be able to, or maybe you'll just find this fun. Either way, read on!

Here are some places to know around campus transcribed in a textual map:
So you might be questioning the purpose of workshop week.
