Introducing Kenley new staff writer

It was simply over two years ago that I started as an Assistant Director of Admission at USC. Wow, just what a journey it is often! I work with students from the variety of areas: Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Kansas City, and parts of Orange County and San Diego (phew!). We have bright hair that is red and the fiery personality to match, and so I am always full of energy or more for any adventure. I love to travel, explore the out-of-doors, bake anything with chocolate (lots of it!), and you can find me dancing when there is a positive tune. I will be thrilled to be joining the blogging team and can’t wait to share a few of my insights and knowledge about the admission college and process life.

I grew up in Utah and lived within the many beautiful mountains in the world. I spent quite a little bit of time exploring them, but got tired of the winters that are lengthy which is why I was eager to attend college in sunny Southern Ca. We went to Claremont McKenna university where I learned International Relations and Psychology.

We loved my college experience. I really adored it, which is why I love involved in advanced schooling, specifically helping students find an organization that is a fit that is good. It is extremely easy to talk to potential pupils about USC because it is this type of place that is great live and learn. We have always been lucky to operate on such a powerful, energy-filled campus. Our students are thinkers, academic options are abundant, and we’re located in an urban community in one of the greatest urban centers on the planet. I cannot wait to share more about the USC experience plus the admission process in my posts to come!

Dining Table For Starters

‘ Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had much longer how to go. But no matter, the road is life.’ Jack Kerouac

Currently, i will be writing this blog sitting inside a Peet’s Coffee in Northern California. Dining Table for one, headphones in ears, answering emails and signing down notes about my senior school visits from earlier today. For the next week and a half, i am surviving in hotel spaces and having dishes on my own. Usually, there is time for you to explore the populous cities I visit to ensure that’s nice. But most of this time, the road can be tiring so I spend nearly all of my time resting as much as possible. It’s very easy to get sick regarding the road!
For approximately two months of the year, several thousand admission representatives throughout the nation live this life style. From the outside perspective, it seems very glamorous. In lots of ways, it is a very fun work. Its truly rewarding to have the ability to help pupils in one of the very most transitional phases in their everyday lives. It is additionally good having the ability to be out of the workplace. However, this right element of the task can be isolating as well. It generates me appreciate my friends, family and wife straight back in the home even more.
Nevertheless, our mission is what is on the forefront. USC visits over 2,000 schools each year; we go to the most high schools out of any college in the united states. We are out here searching for students that will make-up the next class that is incoming of at USC. It is our goal to put together an exceptionally diverse class every 12 months so we wish to meet various types of pupils. I am honored doing my small part in this process. It brings me a sense of fulfillment to the office for the university that aligns with my own vision for education.
So seek us out. Ask concerns. Become familiar with us. We care by what we do and all we want is for you yourself to be happy with your decision. It is a life that is big so that it’s important to be up to date. Like we are in a hurry in between visits, it’s probably because we are if we seem. But we will always allow you to be feel welcome to contact us at a time that is different via email or phone. We believe just what we do things. We like it. Regardless if it means sitting through one lonely meal at a time ☺
