WASHINGTON, PA (May 31, 2018)—Pursuing a bachelor’s degree is a journey—and it’s not always a straight path. It’s important for students to find the college that suits their needs, even if it’s not the institution where they began their education.
Washington & Jefferson College (W&J) junior Anosh Matti ’20 knows that better than most. He began his college career at another institution, but transferred to W&J at the start of his sophomore year.
Anosh saw an opportunity at W&J to get the type of education he needs.
“I transferred to W&J (because of) the Magellan Program and the pre-law track offered here, which creates a successful path for my future,” said Anosh, who is double-majoring in political science and philosophy. “W&J is the right college for me because through the pre-law track, I can establish a great path to law school, and W&J makes it easy for me to switch majors if my plans change.”
Once he arrived on campus in the fall of 2017, Anosh found a world of supportive faculty and friends. He’s created lasting relationships here, and has enjoyed learning more about the history of the institution and participating in campus activities.
“My experience at W&J has been extraordinary so far,” he said. “I don’t feel like I transferred here. With my friends, teachers, and campus life, I feel like I arrived at my second home.”
Anosh knows that making a big change can be scary, but he’s glad he did and he encourages other students who are considering transferring to W&J to do the same.
“Just take a deep breath. Success and happiness is a choice you have to make for yourself, but W&J will give you the professors, the options, and the connections to make the right choices to lead you to happiness and success,” he said.
