Tips in order to avoid Senioritis. Don’t wait by the mailbox for admission decisions!

You’ve worked difficult, you have applied to university, and maybe you’ve already gotten some college acceptance letters. Congratulations! Because exciting as it might to life after high college, now is not the time and energy to slack off.

Sure, its semester that is second summer may feel it’s right around the part. But even you end up attending will review your spring grades even after you’ve been admitted if you had a stellar fall semester academically, the college. If your grades decrease from the right time you had been admitted, there exists a opportunity that the admission could be rescinded. And no one wishes to handle that.

Here are tips on the best way to avoid senioritis:

Do enjoy yourself! You’re only a school that is high as soon as. Look for a stability between hanging away with friends, going to high school occasions, and buckling down seriously to study for AP exams classes.

Never let your grades slip. You’ve worked hard for far too long to stop caring and start slacking. Colleges will take notice of a downward trend in grades.

Do keep your eyes on the award: university. You realize that saying that college will be the ideal years you will ever have? Imagine how much more you’ll enjoy it knowing you are as a college student that you worked hard in high school to get where.

Do not let others peer pressure you into not caring regarding the classes. Possibly some of the classmates have already been admitted to the college of the ambitions and believe now is a wonderful time to celebrate and relax. As I mentioned previously, universities will examine your last senior high school transcript, that may influence your offer of admission.

Do remain positive! This may be a stressful time- waiting to get admission decisions, wanting to decide where you can spend the next four many years of your life are not easy items to manage. Focus on your academics and involvements and spend time with relatives and buddies rather than driving yourself crazy waiting by the mailbox or computer for college admission decisions.

It’s likely that you ‘re going to possess some college that is fantastic. Celebrate your victories. Continue steadily to work hard. And most of all? Have a deep breath. Your year that is senior is you make of it.

A Valentine’s Day Tale of Two Trojans

Valentine’s is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than by sharing a love story that is near and dear to our hearts day.

It had been Fall of 1986, and our esteemed Director of Admission, Kirk Brennan, was merely a mere freshman studying Cinema at USC. Kirk lived on the ‘Cinema Interest’ floor associated with dorm, mostly inhabited by other film dudes and just a few girls (in those days, the School of Cinematic Arts had a male bulk). One of those girls ended up being Julie- or ‘Bubbles’ as her friends affectionately called her because of her big, bubbly personality.

Kirk and Julie had one class together at USC- a Geography course. Kirk says one of his favorite memories at USC involved this program: He stayed up so late working on their ‘480’ film project he slept through the deadline of a big Geography lab! He begged the TA to accept his homework that is late and his relief, she complied. Thankfully, Julie never heard about Kirk’s tardiness!

One time, Kirk and his friends decided it would be fun to have a party that is screening and luckily for them, Julie offered to host the party at her Dad’s house in Santa Monica. Julie, a cook that is excellent whipped up some fried chicken for the hungry teens, and according to Kirk, that’s when he knew he had to ask her down: ‘When I saw her cooking that chicken, I thought she was pretty cute!’

2-3 weeks later, on September 19th, 1986, Kirk invited Julie to a fraternity rush celebration, which may become known as their very first date. One date is all it took- Kirk and Julie ‘decided to get together’ after that evening, and six years later, Kirk got down using one leg and asked Julie become their wife.

And now for the proposal…

When Kirk’s buddy told him that he had been moving and wanted to have a goodbye party, Kirk saw a way to invite friends and family over and pop music the question ‘under the guise of the house cooling celebration.’ Kirk rented a video camera from Blockbuster (evidently you could do that in the nineties) to make sure that the afternoon would live in perpetuity. Too bad the Trojan Marching Band ended up beingn’t there to serenade!

Kirk asked Julie to marry him, and in June, they will celebrate 2 full decades of marriage. As Kirk states, ‘marriage ain’t easy, but it is worth it!’

Day from the Trojan Family to yours, Happy Valentine’s!
