After a year and a half (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 is this kind of fun learning experience. I ended up being in a position to see a desire for internet development and user design/experience, and We am excited to express that i am shifting to carry on employed in that field!
i will be forever grateful for the time I've spent at USC and I can not say enough about my own and professional development while i have been here. The individuals whom work here are GREAT at whatever they do; you are in good arms. It's particularly inspiring to operate every day alongside colleagues whom truly worry about this work. They've been peers, but I am honored to also phone them friends.
Finally, it mightn't be described as a weblog post without my typical list. Below are the top 3 things I learned throughout my two and a half years at USC.

Never Stop Learning
For all of you that are going to begin university, the following four years will likely be the time that is last yourself that the task would be to discover. Learning is that which you will be doing 24/7. Carry this spirit of learning with you after you have graduated and approach every day understanding that there is constantly more to understand.

Free Food Is Awesome
In reality, this is budget advice. I have discovered that I spend the most money on food on a monthly basis so i usually simply take advantage of free food. I made the error of using too long to figure out just how to monitor my money. Like John Maxwell said, 'Tell your cash where to get alternatively of wondering where it went.'

Diversity Rules
I love my workplace for many and varied reasons; one of these is due to the various backgrounds of my peers. There's a running joke within the workplace that we sometimes look such as a United Colors of Benetton advertisement as a result of just how diverse we are (so we dress ON POINT). But in all severity, being around my colleagues has caused me to understand more about other peoples' experiences and perspectives. Learn to comprehend the huge benefits of diversity. You are going to be an improved leader, community member, worker, employer, and human being.

Well, that's it for me. To my pupils from Napa, Sonoma, Santa Rosa, Davis and the state of Washington, I will dearly miss you during travel period. It is truly been a pleasure serving every body and in the expressed terms of Ron Burgundy, 'Stay classy and thanks for stopping by.'

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

Hey Everyone!My name is Sam and we am so excited to be joining the USC Admission we Blog! I've been working at the office for pretty much four years now and have worked with Houston, Austin, San Antonio plus the central coast of Ca since I began. I am from SoCal and attended Calabasas senior high school before you go to Nashville, TN for college. At Vanderbilt, we double majored in Spanish and psychology and then returned to Los Angeles and did a masters in social work here at USC.

I happened to be really tangled up in the admission office at Vandy (that is exactly what the cool kids call it, we vow), and dabbled in graduate school aswell, so pursuing college admissions as a vocation ended up being constantly on my head. In addition to having the ability to try out a role in advanced schooling by having a group that is great of, I love dealing with prospective and current pupils. My theory is I stopped growing up at around age 16, but it is additionally feasible young ones these days are simply super cool.

I hope to bring a genuine and authentic perspective to your admission we blog and assist people see that the admission counselors are really simply as you, whoever you are. I have no question that whatever topics We cover there will be individual anecdotes thrown in there (and probably cat pictures) but also wish to provide insight into just what is a very process that is human. Thanks for reading!
