Recently I’ve been having a hard time living in the moment. All the excitement for my upcoming future has me daydreaming or worried, and I forget to appreciate this time that I’m in now. I ran across a picture on Facebook of a beautiful poem, and it resonated with me. I wanted to share this with you all as a reminder to appreciate each period of life.
First I was dying to finish high school and start college
And then I was dying to finish college and start working.
And then I was dying to marry and have children
And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough for school, so I could return to work.
And then I was dying to retire.
And now, I am dying…. and suddenly I realize I forgot to live.
Scroll down for the information and announcement. The FREE program is for rising junior and senior girls.

Scroll down to read the announcement from Colby College regarding its generous financial funding for fall 2015. September 2011, I visited Colby and have had school counselees and clients attend. It’s a private, liberal-arts college located in Waterville, Maine. They have a 29% admit rate; approximately 1,863 students; 95% return for sophomore year; and applications overlap with Amherst C, Bowdoin C, Brown U, Cornell U, Dartmouth C, Middlebury C, Williams C, Princeton U, Harvard C, and Tufts U.
NEWS FROM COLBY COLLEGE!!!!
|I am writing with exciting news from Colby College: at its fall meeting, Colby’s Board of Trustees authorized a new investment in financial aid totaling $1.2 million for this admissions cycle.
We recognize that the cost of higher education is of major concern, and these funds will enable us to offer admission to many more highly qualified students regardless of their families’ financial situations. If you have students who are interested in Colby, I hope you will make them aware of these new grant funds.
Our longstanding commitments to making a Colby education accessible remain unchanged:
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about Colby, our financial aid policies, or the type of student who is most likely to be qualified for and excel at Colby.
With best wishes,
Steve Saunders Interim Vice President and Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid
Read the new NCAA 2016 Division I academic requirements I shared last year. For information visit:
As you may be aware, this year we required freshmen applicants to self report their grades and upload an unofficial copy of their transcripts. As a result, we are happy to report that we are able to release a number of decisions sooner than expected. Late last week, we mailed acceptance packets to many students who met our October 15 deadline. We are not finished! All students who met our October 15 early answer deadline or the November 15 Honors College application deadline will still receive a decision before the middle of December.
You may get questions from students who did not receive a decision; please assure them we are still processing applications and will notify all students who met the early answer notification deadline by the middle of December, as promised.
We thought we’d also share with you the message we are sending students through our social media. We have a post written by our Director of Undergraduate Admissions, Dr. Mary Wagner, that speaks specifically to students about our early release of decisions. Feel free to read it and share with your students. You can find it at: http://uofscadmissions.tumblr.com/
Have you extended your college search to include honors programs at public universities? If not, shame on you. You are limiting many opportunities for a rigorous undergraduate program with research, a competitive curriculum, financial incentives, and unexpected privileges.
