Being a transfer student is a different kind of experience from the usual freshman life. I received my Associates in Engineering Science from Rock Valley College (RVC) in Rockford, IL in the Spring of 2014. After visiting several schools and filling out applications, I chose The Milwaukee School of Engineering as the place I would complete my degree in mechanical engineering. I moved to Milwaukee in the late summer of 2014 from my home in Rockford, IL. I was ready for new experiences and to be out on my own.
