Posts From the Office #1


I work in the admissions office at the college that I attend. Our job is to promote the university to high school students, answer all their questions about the school, and manage and oversee their applications.

Today, my task was to input contact information we had received from a group of middle schoolers (Yes, middler schooler...really? They are like 10) into our database. 

And here were my findings...

When asked to write down an "Academic major of interest to you"
Middle school girl: "model"
Middle school boy: "super attendant" (soooo cute!)
The classic over-achiever: "teacher, musician, journalist, and doctor"

When asked to write down their address, one clever little boy informed us that his address was...
666 HELL LANE!
Cool.

And finally, my favorite find of the day...

After the section labeled "Phone Number" there is a line labeled "Cell Phone Carrier (for text updates)"
Middle school boy: "Your mom"
Middle school girl: "Me, I think"

Not to mention, all middle school boys have ILLEGIBLE handwriting. 

Hope your day was as entertaining as mine!

Your Truly,
