Helping You F‚Äčind the College that Fits


Making the Most of Your Summer

Posted on May 3, 2016 at 2:25 PM

By Cathy Huseby

Summer . . . time to relax, go to the beach, and just chill. Or not??

As a high school student, your motivation doesn't end the last day of school. To be resourceful and multi-dimensional as a college applicant a few years from now, you might want to consider the following in making good use of your time and talents:

1) Consider getting a job. That's right -- a job, where you earn a paycheck. Getting a job shows initiative, willingness to work hard, and a desire to learn new skills. These are great traits!

2) Consider getting (or creating) an internship in a field that interests you. This takes creativity and initiative, but what better way to experience the field you are considering by working (or volunteering) alongside someone else who is doing what you love?

3) Try something new -- broaden yourself. Now is the time to show that you like to learn, not just academically, but outside of school. Pick up a book and learn Latin, take a rock-climbing course, try paddle boarding, or teach yourself to sew. Keep active!

4) Explore colleges you are interested in. Take a virtual tour, explore their majors, go on their course catalogs and read course descriptions, and actually visit the college. What better way to get to know if this college is a good fit for you!

5) Work on a project that is meaningful to you. Or volunteer. These can be related to what you value; what you feel is important. It can be working with kids, working with pets, working with seniors, or working for a cause. Enjoy it!

6) Explore your interests - if you have no idea what you'd like to major in, take some self-assessments and explore more of what YOU might enjoy doing as a career. We can help you get you started.

How you best use your summer can make an impact on how you are perceived in the college admission process -- do it well!

Those thoughts also served to become a great way to recognize that most people have similar zeal much like mine to grasp a great deal more in terms of this condition. I am sure there are a lot more enjoyable occasions ahead for folks who check out your site.

I want to express my thanks to you just for bailing me out of this type of matter. Because of browsing through the the web and finding solutions which were not pleasant, I thought my entire life was done. Existing devoid of the answers to the difficulties you have sorted out all through your entire posting is a crucial case, as well as those which might have in a negative way affected my career if I hadn't noticed your web blog. The talents and kindness in controlling all things was precious. I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't come upon such a solution like this. I'm able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this impressive and sensible guide. I won't think twice to propose your blog post to anyone who would like tips on this issue.

My wife and i were ecstatic Albert managed to do his investigations using the ideas he was given when using the weblog. It's not at all simplistic to simply continually be giving out techniques which usually a number of people may have been selling. And now we do understand we have the website owner to appreciate because of that. The main illustrations you've made, the easy site navigation, the relationships your site aid to promote - it is many spectacular, and it's really making our son and us believe that that matter is cool, which is certainly unbelievably pressing. Many thanks for all the pieces!
