Throughout the fall of each school 12 months, I travel…a lot. We wake up early, catch flights across the nation, and search the Hertz parking great deal for rental cars with backup cameras. During this time, we’m rarely at my desk, I’m meeting tons of awesome pupils, and learning about the cool and exciting things pupils are doing. However when I’m not on an airplane or at the leasing car countertop, right 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 will also be doing Discover USC presentations on campus and through the entire United States and abroad.
- Hoarding Pens
If there clearly was something you should bring with you a high school visit, it’s a pen. We will provide you with one thing to write in, but we don’t supply something to compose with. We give some pretty information that is useful 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 through the 12 months.) But, when we are on the highway, this is our central mission. We attempt to respond to all regarding the 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’s also simpler 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 own 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’m old) or Snapchat, and make some funny updates with the brand new filters (recently the bunny is my personal favorite.) Inevitably I wind up sitting in my car longer than I should when I’m (still) listening to Hamilton and trying down my best (read worst) rap abilities. That reminds me! Anybody filling out 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 love to explore towns and discover about where your home is. Understanding where you come from, helps us understand the job. We need to get a feel for the community and experience that which you encounter on a basis that is daily. I tried an amazing place that is greek week that was in a completely random location…thanks Yelp!
