Say thanks

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Say it out loud. Take a moment during your graduation party or going-away party to recognize those who have supported you.
  4. 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!
