You Say Goodbye, I State 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 your blog was this kind of fun learning experience. We had been in a position to find a passion for internet development and individual 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 here are superb at what they do; you are typical in good arms. It really is especially inspiring to operate every alongside colleagues who truly care about this work day. These are typically peers, but I am honored to also phone them friends.
Finally, it wouldn’t be considered a blog post without my typical list. Here are the top 3 things I discovered throughout my two and a half years at USC.

Never Stop Learning
For every body that are about to start college, the next four years will likely be the time that is last yourself that your particular job is always to discover. Learning is exactly what you shall be doing 24/7. Carry this spirit of learning with you once you have graduated and approach each and every day realizing that there is constantly more to learn.

Complimentary Food Is Awesome
In reality, this is budget advice. I have found so I always take advantage of free food that I spend the most money on food every month. The mistake was made by me of using too long to determine just how to monitor my money. Like John Maxwell said, ‘Tell your money where to go alternatively of wondering where it went.’

Diversity Rules
I adore my workplace for many and varied reasons; one of them is due to the different backgrounds of my colleagues. There exists an operating joke into the office that we sometimes look like a United Colors of Benetton ad due to just how diverse we are (so we dress ON POINT). But in every seriousness, being around my colleagues has triggered me personally to find out more about other peoples’ experiences and perspectives. Discover to understand the benefits of diversity. You’ll be an improved leader, community member, employee, employer, and human being.

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

We now hand you off to your blogger that is new and colleague, the hostest using the mostest, Sam Schreiber.

Hey everyone else!My name is Sam and i’m so excited to be joining the USC Admission Blog! I’ve been working in work for very nearly four years now while having worked with Houston, Austin, San Antonio therefore the central coast of California since we began. I’m from SoCal and attended Calabasas High School before going to Nashville, TN for university. At Vanderbilt, we twice majored in Spanish and therapy and then returned to Los Angeles and did a masters in social work here at USC.

I became really involved in the admission office at Vandy (that is exactly what the kids that are cool it, we vow), and dabbled in graduate school too, so pursuing college admissions as a vocation had been constantly on my brain. In addition to having the ability to play a part in greater education having a great group of peers, I adore using prospective and present pupils. My theory is I stopped growing up at around age 16, however it is additionally possible children these days are just super cool.

I am hoping to bring an honest and authentic perspective towards the admission we blog and assist people see that the admission counselors really are just as if you, whoever you are. I’ve no question that whatever topics I cover you will see individual anecdotes thrown in there (and probably cat pictures) but also wish to provide insight into exactly what is a very human being procedure. Thanks for reading!
