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

After a year and a 1 / 2 of (virtually) working I find it bittersweet to say that this is my last blog post with you, our followers. Today is my last time at USC. Sharing my voice through the blog is this kind of fun learning experience. I ended up being in a position to discover a desire for internet development and user design/experience, and We am excited to state 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 who work right here are excellent at what they do; you are in good fingers. Its especially inspiring to operate every day alongside peers whom certainly care about this work. They truly are colleagues, but I am honored to also call them friends.
Finally, it wouldn’t be considered a weblog post without my typical list. Below are the top 3 things I learned throughout my two and a half years at USC.

Do not Stop Learning

Learning is exactly that which you shall be doing 24/7. Carry this character of learning you have graduated and approach every day knowing that there is always more to learn with you after.

Complimentary Food Is Awesome
In reality, this is spending plan advice. I have found that I invest the most money on food each month so i usually simply take advantage of free food. The mistake was made by me of using too long to figure down how exactly to track my cash. Like John Maxwell stated, ‘Tell your cash where you should go instead of wondering where it went.’

Diversity Rules
I really like my workplace for numerous reasons; one of these could be because of the many backgrounds of my colleagues. There’s an operating joke in the workplace we are (and we dress ON POINT) that we sometimes look like a United Colors of Benetton ad because of how diverse. But in every severity, being around my colleagues has caused me for more information about other peoples’ experiences and perspectives. Learn to understand the advantages of diversity. You will end up a better frontrunner, community member, employee, employer, and being that is human.

Well, that’s it for me. To my pupils from Napa, Sonoma, Santa Rosa, Davis and the state of Washington, I am going to dearly miss you during travel season. It is truly been a pleasure serving all of you and in the expressed terms of Ron Burgundy, ‘Stay classy and thanks for stopping by.’

Hey everyone else!My title is Sam and I am so excited to be joining the USC Admission we Blog! I’ve been working in any office for pretty much four years now and possess caused Houston, Austin, San Antonio as well as the coast that is central of since I began. I am from SoCal and attended Calabasas highschool before you go to Nashville, TN for college. At Vanderbilt, we double 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 taking part in the admission office at Vandy (that is what the kids that are cool it, I promise), and dabbled in graduate school also, so pursuing college admissions as a profession ended up being always on my head. Along with having the capability to play a part in greater education by having a group that is great of, I adore dealing with prospective and current pupils. My theory is I stopped growing up at around age 16, however it is additionally feasible young ones these times are just super cool.

I really hope to bring a genuine and authentic perspective towards the admission we blog and assist people see your admission counselors really are simply you are like you, whoever.
