Well, friends, my summer of traveling, counseling, and promoting SAU has come to a close. This past Sunday I finished up at Simpson Park, packed up the admissions car, and headed back to the Arbor. I can’t believe how quickly it flew by! Each camp was so uniquely different and wonderful. Each week God seemed to teach me something new or introduce me to beautiful hearts. I think the forming of so many new relationships was definitely the highlight of the entire summer.
So what did I learn? I learned many things. God spoke to me each week through different speakers, co-counselors and opportunities. I learned about love, trust, servanthood, vulnerability and humility. But I also feel like God used this summer to introduce me to the world of admissions. I have always loved the process of going to college–I adored it as an incoming freshman, and ever since I have been passionate about helping new students feel at home at the Arbor. (Which is why I love this blogging job so much!) However, this summer I realized I could do this as a career after college. I am highly considering working in an admissions office for a college, hopefully SAU. I love the interactions, the relationships, the enthusiasm. I’m still not 100% sure this is the direction I want to take, but it’s helping me narrow down my thoughts. Ever since switching my major to sociology, the only thing I know is that “I want to work with people.” I think working for admissions would be a great way to utilize my gifts and passion! I’m excited to explore this potential route and see where it leads. I am so thankful for this summer and the doors it opened for me!
