hello BUSY!

Things have really picked up here in the Admissions Office! All off the counselors are preparing to head out on the road either next week or the week after - I'll be taking off on Sunday, September 19th for a week in New Jersey and a week in Albany, NY. I can't believe that it's actually here!

Traveling as an Admission Counselor is an involved process for sure - from ensuring that the car rentals and hotels are taken care of to programming your GPS and EZ Pass to packing your car to the brim with St. Mike's materials to letting students and high schools know when you are coming. Our office is a frenzy of packing materials into boxes, coding materials for different types of visits, assembling bags for counselors and so much more. I'm thankful to have one more week to prepare before taking off.

One really interesting program that counselors host while out on the road is our Coffee with a Counselor program - each counselor goes to a local coffee shop where they are traveling and sets up appointments for coffee and conversation with interested students and their families. I will be hosting Coffee with a Counselor sessions in Florham Park, NJ, Albany NY, Hackensack, NJ, Warren, NJ, Rye, NY and Syracuse, NY. I would love to meet with you if you live in one of these areas! Check out for more information about this program, to learn about the dates and times in other locations and to make an appointment!
