“It’s a big network of friends.”

Finding a major isn’t the only smooth transition Alonzo has experienced while at Missouri State; he describes his overall transition to living independently as easy. “The transition has been pretty easy because I’m really close to home,” he said. “I roomed with a guy I know from high school, too, so that was a lot easier, just knowing and trusting someone.”Alanzo Perez

He also credits the friends he’s made at college as a big part of his great transition. “My friends on campus—that’s what makes everything easier,” he said. “It’s a big network of friends. Most of the friends I have now either live on my floor or I met them through friends that I knew from back home.”

Alonzo and his friends enjoy going to the free movies in the PSU and catching up-and-coming musical artists at concerts sponsored by Student Activities Council.

“It’s a lot.”

Although he quickly adjusted to life on campus, Alonzo admits that he was surprised by the difference between his high school and college classes.

“My first semester I took a religion and a history class, which required a lot of reading. I realized that if I didn’t read, I wouldn’t pass the tests,” he said. “In high school, if you didn’t read, you would still pass the test. I think that’s what has surprised me the most—the amount of time you have to put into your studies. It’s a lot.”

Despite the extra studying, Alonzo describes his professors as caring about his success as a student: “They don’t want you to fail. They may offer extra credit for extra work or things like that, if you make the effort.”
