Send notes to those who helped you make it to college
It’s happening – you’ve graduated high school, been accepted into college, and will soon be settling into a brand-new rhythm of life. But before you pack your bags and start your next adventure, here are a few ways you can thank those who have helped you make it this far:
- Make a list before you start. From grandparents to teachers to close friends, make a careful list of all the people who have supported you emotionally and financially over the years. You don’t want to forget anybody.
- Send thank-you cards. Whether you invest in nice stationery or use online resources like Paperless Post, American Greetings, or Vistaprint, say thank you to those who have helped you with a personal card.
- Say it out loud. Take a moment during your graduation party or going-away party to recognize those who have supported you.
- Use social media. Use Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to share photos and stories so they can see how you’re doing.
Make them proud. They’ve helped you get this far – now it’s up to you to work hard and succeed as much in college as you did before college!
