Do I go or should i stay?

I’ve been thinking a lot lately if going to Main campus is for me or not. The whole point of coming to Newark was to get to Main campus but after everything that has happened this week I’m not so sure. Newark has got that small town feeling that I obviously am use to and it just feels safe. It seems that lately all I hear is bad things that have happened on main campus and how there are crime alerts out at least twice a week for different things, and it just makes me think if I will actually feel comfortable there next year. Don’t get me wrong I love main campus its beautiful and I would love to be able to live on campus and be with my friends who are transferring there also. But I am having second thoughts now, I even went to see my adviser this morning and signed the papers to be transferred to main campus so all my paper work is done but I just don’t know how I feel about it all now.
I know I’ll probably end up going to main campus next year but I just hope that it’s all its cracked up to be. I don’t know why I’m so scared all of a sudden about going to main campus, but I am. I just keep thinking of any possible situation that could go wrong while I’m there, I just keep scaring myself. I think it all got worse after everything that happened with Virginia Tech on Monday. I came to realize that anything can happen no matter where you are and that is what scares me the most.

Elizabeth--

A solid idea for a post, a topical response. i would have suggested linking to a news story about the event rather than the school itself, just because that link would help explain "what happened" at VTU. Your should get your blog list back under your page title (which still has a misspelled "to" in it). 5/5

Well, I like main campus, but I like OSU-N better. I feel like I get more personal attention at Newark and have opportunities students on main campus might not get. Of course your major determines rather or not you can finish your degree here, but I wouldn’t count Newark out right away. Interesting post.
