Complete Strong & Fight On! Hey, senior high school seniors all of us know that summer time is around the corner. For Southern California residents, it is already here (at minimum it absolutely was for a week. You are prepared to fill up on suntan cream and your attention period gets faster and smaller in course. We know it may get difficult but wait a longer that is little. Never cave in!

Michael Jordan stated, ‘It’s perhaps not how hard you push along the way, it is having one thing in you to finish.’ We know, We wish he was speaking about an In N Out burger too. Maybe with a relative part of animal fries.

All joking aside, it is vital to shut out your senior 12 months, stay consistent and finish strong. Keep doing that which you’ve been doing the final 4 years and don’t let up. Although you had an impressive academic fall semester, remember that colleges will still desire to see your final high college transcript.

Below are a few what to keep in brain as the is ending year:

AP/IB Tests

You Say Goodbye, I State Hello (Hello, Hello)

After a year and a 1 / 2 of (virtually) working with you, our followers, we believe it is bittersweet to say that this is certainly my final blog post. Today is my last day at USC. Sharing my voice through your blog happens to be this type of fun learning experience. We had been in a position to uncover a desire for internet development and individual design/experience, and I have always been excited to express that i am moving forward to keep employed in that industry!
i’m forever grateful for the time i have spent at USC and I can not say sufficient about our and professional development while i have been right here. The people whom work here are superb at whatever they do; you are in good arms. It’s particularly inspiring to function every day alongside colleagues whom really care about this work. They are colleagues, but i’m honored to also phone them friends.
Finally, it wouldn’t be described as a weblog post without my typical list. Listed here are the top 3 things I discovered throughout my two and a years that are half USC.

Do not Stop Learning
For every body who’re going to begin with university, the following four years will likely be the final amount of time in your life that the task is to discover. Learning is what you shall be doing 24/7. Carry this nature of learning you have graduated and approach every day knowing that there is always more to learn with you after.

Complimentary Food rocks !
In reality, this is spending plan advice. I’ve found that I invest probably the most money on food every month so i usually just take benefit of free food. The mistake was made by me of using too long to figure away exactly how to track my money. Like John Maxwell said, ‘Tell your hard earned money where to go rather of wondering where it went.’

Diversity Rules
I enjoy my workplace for numerous reasons; one of these could be because of the many backgrounds of my peers. There exists an operating joke in the workplace we are (and we dress ON POINT) that we sometimes look like a United Colors of Benetton ad because of how diverse. But in most severity, being around my colleagues has triggered me to find out more about other peoples’ experiences and perspectives. Discover to appreciate the huge benefits of diversity. You will end up a much better frontrunner, community member, employee, employer, and being that is human.

Well, that’s it for me personally. To my students from Napa, Sonoma, Santa Rosa, Davis and the state of Washington, I shall miss you dearly during travel season. It is truly been a pleasure serving every body and in the expressed terms of Ron Burgundy, ‘Stay classy and thanks for visiting.’

I now hand you down to your new blogger and my colleague, the hostest with the mostest, Sam Schreiber.

Hey everyone else!My name is Sam and i will be so excited to be joining the USC Admission Blog! I have been working at work for nearly four years now and have worked with Houston, Austin, San Antonio as well as the coast that is central of since We began. I’m from SoCal and attended Calabasas senior school before going to Nashville, TN for college. At Vanderbilt, I twice majored in Spanish and therapy and then returned to Los Angeles and did a masters in social work here at USC.

I ended up being really taking part in the admission office at Vandy (that is exactly what the cool kids call it, I vow), and dabbled in graduate school as well, so pursuing college admissions as a lifetime career ended up being always on my head. Along with having the ability to relax and play a part in degree by having a group that is great of, I like dealing with prospective and present pupils. My theory is I stopped growing up at around age 16, however it is also possible young ones these days are just super cool.

I hope to bring an truthful and authentic perspective to the admission blog and assist people see that your admission counselors actually are just as if you, whoever you are. I’ve no doubt that whatever topics We cover there will be individual anecdotes thrown in there (and probably cat pictures) but also hope to provide insight into exactly what is a very individual process. Thanks for reading!
