Throughout the fall of each school year, I travel…a great deal. I wake up early, catch flights across the nation, and search the Hertz parking great deal for rental cars with backup cameras. During this time around, I’m seldom 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 what I’m probably doing…
- Interviews and Receptions and tall class 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 will also be doing Discover USC presentations on campus and through the United States and abroad.
- Hoarding Pens
If there was something you should bring with you a senior school visit, it’s a pen. We will provide something to write on, but we don’t present something to compose with. We give some pretty information that is useful these visits, so it is generally useful to make note of a few notes. Last week I visited schools in southern Virginia. I started the week with about ten extra pens and ended with two.
- Responding to questions
We fork out a lot of time answering questions while we travel (and really throughout the year.) But, when we’re on your way, this is our central mission. We you will need to answer all associated with relevant question you have while we are in your area. SO, the piece that is best of advice I can give you is ASK YOUR ISSUES. It’s also more straightforward to answer questions whenever we are standing in front side of you then to later email us.
- Sitting in my own vehicle
We sit in my car…a lot… often it feels than I do in the actual high school like I spend more time in my car. Often I’ll check Facebook (I’m old) or Snapchat, and make some updates that are funny the newest filters (lately the bunny is the best.) Inevitably I find yourself sitting in my car longer than I should when I’m (still) listening to Hamilton and trying down my best (browse worst) rap skills. That reminds me! Anybody filling out the Quick Takes yet? Remember, short, sweet, and just be YOU! This isn’t 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 the application. We would like to get a feel for the community and experience that which you experience on a basis that is daily. We tried an amazing place that is greek week which was in a completely random location…thanks Yelp!
