Well, heres my story. I spent a year at chico state in northern california, overall i had a good time but i got so sick of the town after the first year so i moved to the island of o'ahu to try somethin new...spent a semester at the university of hawaii but i didnt really like the requirements for my major and i missed california. Came back home, went to junior college for a semester and now im at a commuter school that sucks. Basically you meet nobody and my only motivation is graduating as soon as possible to get out of here. I was thinking of maybe transferring AGAIN...i regret leaving chico sometimes, but its not a place i really want to be for a few more years. I wasnt able to get into any of my top choices out of high school so I resorted to basically "throwing things against the wall hoping it would stick" and choosing some back ups. I dont know, sometimes i analyze college too much thinking i need everything to be perfect...a college in a cool city, with good programs, with parties,etc...i just feel like a screw up. Its either back to chico, stay close to home at this boring commuter school, or maybe try to get into the university of san diego(which may not happen). The whole thing just sucks, because i hate being home but at the same time i dont want to backtrack and screw up my coursework if i go somewhere else.I dont really know what to do...

At your commuter school there must be some sort of academic advisor you can talk to and see if they can help guide you. Personally I think if you dont like the school you are at now then you shouldn't waste your time there. If you are not enjoying yourself then put yourself in an environment where you will. You cant be successful in school if you are not having fun. Just my two cents. But go with what feels right.

Agree with Sf, and would that I don't think that repeatedly switching schools will look good to grad schools either--that is if you are going to go to grad school.

True. You also sound like you are looking for immediate gratification wherever you are. Go back to Chico and give it some time. And realize that things will never be perfect but they will fall into an acceptable place.
