Tips to prevent Senioritis. Do not wait by the mailbox for admission decisions!

You’ve worked difficult, you’ve applied to university, and maybe you’ve already received some college acceptance letters. Congratulations! As exciting as it would likely to life after high college, now is not the time for you to slack off.

Sure, it really is second semester and summer may feel like it’s appropriate around the corner. But also 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 If your grades decline from the time you were admitted, there is a possibility that your admission could be rescinded. And no one wishes to cope with that.

Here are tips on how best to avoid senioritis:

Do enjoy yourself! You’re only a senior high school senior as soon as. Look for a balance between hanging away with friends, attending high college occasions, and buckling down to study for AP exams classes.

Never let your grades slip. You’ve worked hard for much too long to stop caring and begin slacking. Colleges will take notice of a trend that is downward grades.

Do keep your eyes on the reward: college. You realize that saying that college will be the ideal years of your life? 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.

Never let others peer force you into not caring regarding the classes. Perhaps some of one’s classmates have been completely admitted to the college of the dreams and think that now is a time that is great celebrate and relax. As I mentioned earlier, colleges will view your last senior school transcript, that may influence your offer of admission.

Do remain positive! This might be a stressful time- waiting to get admission decisions, wanting to decide where you can spend the next four several 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 are going to have some great college options. Celebrate your victories. Continue to strive. And most of all? Take a deep breath. Your senior year is what you make from it.

A Valentine’s Tale of Two Trojans day

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

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

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

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

A few weeks later, on September 19th, 1986, Kirk invited Julie to a fraternity rush celebration, which would come to be referred to as their very first date. One date is all it took- Kirk and Julie ‘decided to get together’ after that and six years later, Kirk got down on one knee and asked Julie to be his wife night.

And now for the proposal…

Whenever Kirk’s buddy told him that he was moving and wanted to enjoy a goodbye party, Kirk saw a chance to invite buddies and family over and pop the question ‘under the guise of the house cooling celebration.’ Kirk rented a video camera from Blockbuster (apparently you could do that in the nineties) to ensure your day would live in perpetuity. Too bad the Trojan Marching Band had beenn’t there to serenade!

Kirk asked Julie to marry him, and in June, they are going to commemorate 2 full decades of wedding. As Kirk claims, ‘marriage ain’t easy, but it’s worth every penny!’

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