Through the fall of each school 12 months, I travel…a lot. I wake up early, catch flights across the country, and search the Hertz parking lot for rental cars with backup cameras. During this time, we’m rarely at my desk, I’m meeting a great deal of awesome students, and learning about the cool and exciting things pupils are doing. But when i am not on an airplane or at the car that is rental, here’s just what I’m probably doing…
- Interviews and Receptions and High School visits
Check your senior school’s hallways for our visit posters. You should see our poster outside your counseling office if we are coming to your school over the next couple of weeks. We’ll additionally be Discover that is doing USC on campus and through the entire United States and abroad.
- Hoarding Pens
If there is a very important factor you should bring with that you high school visit, it’s a pen. We shall give you something to write on, but we don’t supply something to compose with. We give some pretty useful information at these visits, so it is generally helpful to make note of a few notes. Last week I visited schools in southern Virginia. I started the week with about ten pens that are extra ended with two.
- Responding to questions
We fork out a lot of time questions that are answering we travel (and really throughout the 12 months.) But, whenever we are on the highway, this is our central mission. We you will need to respond to all of this relevant question you have while we are in your town. SO, the piece that is best of advice I can offer you is ASK YOUR QUESTIONS. It is also more straightforward to answer questions when we are standing in front side of you then to email us later.
- Sitting in my automobile
I sit in my car…a lot… often it feels like I save money time in my car than We do in the particular high school. Often I’ll check Facebook (i am old) or Snapchat, and make some updates that are funny the new filters (lately the bunny is my personal favorite.) Inevitably I wind up sitting within my car much longer than I should when I’m (still) listening to Hamilton and trying away my most readily useful (read worst) rap skills. That reminds me! Anyone filling out of the Quick Takes yet? Remember, quick, sweet, and just be YOU! This is not a trick.
- Consuming local but drinking Starbucks
Have any good restaurant recommendations that aren’t Chipotle? Send them our way! We like to explore towns and learn about where you reside. Understanding where you come from, helps us understand your application. We need to get a feel for the community and experience what you experience on a daily basis. I tried a great Greek place last week that has been in a totally random location…thanks Yelp!
