“So Long, Farewell…”


Me and my colleague, Olivia, at the Discover USC Open House in 2011

          It’s hard to believe that after working for nearly 3 years on the admission blog, this is my final post. Reflecting on my time as an admission counselor at USC is bittersweet. I learned a ton, I’ve grown professionally, and I was challenged day in and day out. But, more important than what I’ve accomplished or contributed in my job, I get to move on from this chapter of my life with amazing memories, hilarious stories, and best of all, some pretty incredible friends.

          The silver lining for me is that I’m not leaving the college admission world entirely—I’ll be transitioning to “the other side of the desk” as we like to say in this profession by working in a high school as a college counselor. I’m excited to continue working with students and families in this capacity and I feel so lucky to have had such a wonderful experience at USC to help guide me moving forward.

          Saying goodbye is never easy, but much like it’s hard to graduate from high school and start your life as a college student, life is really all about the transitions and embarking on new and exciting chapters. So, that’s how I’m going to view this change—I’m “graduating” from my 4 years in the undergraduate admission office at USC and simply moving on to the next chapter of my life. I’m leaving USC with incredible memories and going into my next adventure with an open mind. Best of all, my experience at USC will always be a part of me — Fight On!
