Make the Most of Winter Break, Future Wildcats!
Labor Day and fall breaks passed us by, Halloween we hardly knew you, Thanksgiving is not for another 350+ days. Hard to believe winter break is almost upon us! No matter where you are, you’re probably about to take another step towards graduation and finish another part of your high-school career.
With this fall semester (or quarter, trimester, etc) winding down, it’s important to think of what you’re going to accomplish during your winter break!
I’m sure you’re looking forward to eating food, sleeping and spending time with family, but winter break is also an important time to check in on college applications. With the hustle and bustle of a school semester, it can be difficult to invest meaningful time in your University of Arizona application or the completion of your Next Steps if you have already been admitted.
During my senior year winter break, I remember all I wanted to do was take a snooze on the couch and watch college basketball, but I realized that finishing up my Next Steps was incredibly important. I submitted my immunization records, took my placement tests, applied for housing, and became ready to attend my dream school. Did you know that the earlier you apply for on-campus housing, the better chance you have of getting your top choice dorm?
Study hard for finals, enjoy your holiday break, and take the next steps to becoming #WildcatReady!
