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

After a year and a 1 / 2 of (virtually) working with you, our supporters, we believe it is bittersweet to express that this might be my last blog post. Today is my last day at USC. Sharing my voice through your blog happens to be this kind of fun experience that is learning. We had been able to learn a passion for internet development and user design/experience, and I have always been excited to express I am forever grateful for the time I’ve spent at USC and I can’t say enough about my personal and professional development while I’ve been here that I will be moving on to continue working in that field. The individuals whom work right here are GREAT at whatever they do; you are all in good arms. It really is especially inspiring to exert effort every alongside colleagues who truly care about this work day. They truly are colleagues, but we am honored to also phone them friends.
Finally, it wouldn’t be described as a web log post without my typical list. Here are the top 3 things I discovered throughout my two and a years that are half USC.

Never Stop Learning
For every body that are about to begin university, the next four years will be the time that is last your daily life that your task would be to discover. Learning is exactly everything 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 spend probably the most cash on food each month so I always just take advantage of free food. The mistake was made by me of taking too long to figure down how exactly to track my cash. Like John Maxwell said, ‘Tell your hard earned money where to go alternatively of wondering where it went.’

Diversity Rules
I enjoy my workplace for numerous reasons; one of these could be because of the different backgrounds of my colleagues. There exists a running joke into the workplace that we sometimes look like a United Colors of Benetton advertisement as a result of exactly how diverse we are (and now we dress ON POINT). But in every seriousness, being around my colleagues has triggered me to find out more about other peoples’ experiences and perspectives. Discover to comprehend the benefits of diversity. You will end up a much better leader, community member, employee, employer, and human being.

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 writer and my colleague, the hostest with all the mostest, Sam Schreiber.

Hey everybody!My title is Sam and i’m so excited to be joining the USC Admission we Blog! I have been working at work for pretty much four years now and also have worked with Houston, Austin, San Antonio therefore the main coast of Ca since We began. I’m from SoCal and attended Calabasas High class before going to Nashville, TN for college. At Vanderbilt, we twice majored in Spanish and therapy and then came ultimately back to Los Angeles and did a masters in social work here at USC.

I became really involved with the admission office at Vandy (that’s exactly what the kids that are cool it, I promise), and dabbled in graduate school too, so pursuing college admissions as a lifetime career was constantly on my mind. In addition to having the ability to try out a part in degree having a group that is great of, I really like dealing with prospective and current students. My theory is I stopped growing up at around age 16, however it is additionally feasible children these times are simply super cool.

I hope to bring a genuine and authentic perspective to your admission blog and assist people see that your particular admission counselors actually are simply you are like you, whoever. I have no question that whatever topics I cover there will be personal anecdotes thrown in there (and probably cat pictures) but also wish to provide insight into just what is a very process that is human.
