Oh here we go, here we go, here we go again!

Well another travel season is upon us! I honestly can't believe it's that time of year again. I feel like I was just getting off the road from last year! I am very excited about this year and the places I will be going. There are so many NEW wonderful, exciting things happening for R-MC. It makes my job a whole lot easier and makes me very excited to hit the road and share the "Buzz" about R-MC with as many people as I can!

So far this year, travel season has been going very well! I cover the Fredericksburg and Northern Neck areas of VA and I travel to North Carolina! Although my territory spans the southeast from NC down and over to TX I only travel to NC during travel season.

 I don't have any crazy stories at this point, but don't worry it's still early, haha! There is never a dull moment during travel season and I really shouldn't be surprised anymore at some of the stuff I see or that happens considering this is my third travel season. In fact, come Oct. 5 I will have officially completed my 3rd year in the admissions office at R-MC!!! What a wonderful ride it has been!

 Highlights of my trip so far...

 So far I have covered Eastern NC and parts of Western NC and the Northern Neck area of VA.

 During this travel season so far I have met some really fun people! I really enjoy doing college fairs because not only do I get the chance to meet with some perspective students I also get to meet other counselors representing other colleges. I call them my counselor friends! :) When you are standing behind a table for hours at a time you become very close to the other counselors that have tables around you. It really does help the time pass getting to know each other, joke around, and bounce different travel season stories off each other.

 I also love taking pictures everywhere I go of neat things I see, pretty schools I visit, and some things that are out of the ordinary. The following pictures are some of the schools I have visited that I just had to take pictures of because they are really cool buildings!

St. Mary's School, Raleigh, NC

Needham Broughton High School, Raleigh, NC

Cary Academy, Cary, NC

If you are asking yourself what do you actually do at a college fair? This is a picture of my table at a college fair. I stand behind this table and talk to whoever comes up to my table wanting more information about R-MC. It was a very busy fair and this was taken at the end of the program. You can see my table was looking very bare by the end of the night with minimal materials! That is a good sign! :)

Also, throughout travel I like to plan fun things to do throughout my travels to keep things interesting. Be on the look out for a new post to see what I did while I was visiting the Northern Neck!!! You won't want to miss it!


  1. I love these posts and seeing where you go. I feel like I"m riding along with you :-) Those buildings are so "east coast" and make me miss home! Thanks for sharing a picture of your table; I always wonder what these "fairs" are all about ;-)

    1. I love how you say they look so "east coast" really looks "East Coast" now with all the changing leaves. I will try and capture some pictures for you of those.
