Throughout the fall of each school year, I travel…a lot. We wake up early, catch flights across the national nation, and search the Hertz parking lot for rental cars with back-up cameras. During this time, 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. However when i am not on an airplane or at the car that is rental, here’s exactly what I’m probably doing…
- Interviews and Receptions and High School visits
Check your highschool’s hallways for our visit posters. If we are coming to your college on the next little while you should see our poster outside your counseling office. We shall also be doing Discover USC presentations on campus and throughout the United States and abroad.
- Hoarding Pens
If there is a very important factor you should bring with that you senior school visit, it’s a pen. We shall present something to write on, but we don’t give you something to write with. We give some pretty information that is useful these visits, so it’s generally helpful to jot down a few notes. Last i visited schools in southern Virginia week. I started the week with about ten extra pens and ended with two.
- Answering questions
We spend a lot of time answering questions while we travel (and really throughout the 12 months.) But, when we are on the way, this is our central mission. We attempt to respond to all for the question you have while we are in your area. SO, the best piece of advice I can provide you is ASK YOUR QUESTIONS. It’s also simpler to answer questions when we are standing in front side of you then to email us later.
- Sitting in my own automobile
I sit within my car…a lot… Sometimes it feels than I do in the actual high school like I spend more time in my car. Often I’ll check Facebook (i am old) or Snapchat, and make some funny updates with the new filters (recently the bunny is my personal favorite.) Inevitably I wind up sitting in my car much longer than I should as I’m (still) playing Hamilton and trying down my most readily useful (read worst) rap skills. That reminds me! Anybody filling out the Quick Takes yet? Remember, quick, 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 love to explore urban centers and discover about where you live. Understanding where you come from, helps us understand the application. We want to get a feel for your community and experience what you experience on a basis that is daily. We tried an incredible Greek place last week that was in an entirely random location…thanks Yelp!
