Professional Development


Things have began to settle down around the office now that all freshman decisions were made. We’re still focusing on reviewing transfer files, but our staff recently took a fast trip to Reno, NV to attend a conference that is professional.

While here, we attended sessions about various admission subjects and greatest methods, such as how to offer a powerful school that is high, what forms of technology might be beneficial in the recruitment process, and how to read college essays while paying attention of our own personal biases (positive or negative). The seminar also gave us a chance to get in touch with our peers from various components of the country, including many of your high school counselors. It in fact was a opportunity that is great share our own knowledge and expertise and learn from the other person. Even the most seasoned admission counselors on our staff discovered something new at the seminar!

Summer is our chance to sleep, review what we’ve learned over the past year, and prepare for the coming year. We hope you’re able to do the same through your summer break!

Summer in the town


It is officially summer in Southern Ca! Campus is just a bit quieter, the temperatures are becoming warmer, & most importantly, the rate in our workplace has slowed down. We are also benefiting from this downtime to explore Los Angeles and all that our town has to offer our pupils.

Like in past summers, we’re utilising the summer time Restaurant Series, planned by some of our very own peers, to explore the local food. Simply last month, we ventured to 23rd St. Café in USC’s yard. This unique restaurant offers United states, Indian, and Mexican food, also some fusion dishes. The Chicken Tikka Masala quesadilla was quite popular in our group! For the 2nd food outing, our restaurant series took us to Umamicatessen. According to the internet site, this location is ‘inspired by international road bazaars as well as the classic United states delicatessen’ and offers 5 different kitchens serving up diverse kinds of food within a hall that is dining within the Orpheum Theatre. A number of our favorite meals during this outing had been the truffle fries, made-to-order donuts, and various forms of Umami’s specialty: burgers.

Besides eating our way through some of LA’s notable restaurants, we’ll spend time during July and August going to social activities and checking out historic spots around the city. Some activities we’ll experience include a guided tour of the Disney Concert Hall and Music Center, enjoying the Downtown LA Art Walk, and hopping on the newly opened Expo line to simply take the train to the Culver City Farmers Market.
