"It's a matter of what school you're going to end up enrolling," Todd Rinehart said. "There's an academic and financial match for every senior. They should enjoy their senior year, keep working hard and pay attention to those upcoming deadlines."
He says it's important for a student to be well-rounded - not solely focused on academics but also demonstrate leadership qualities.
"We want people who are really going to make a difference on our campus," Rinehart said. "We don't want that mile-long laundry list of activities. We would prefer to see students pick two or three things they're passionate about and purposeful in their lives and focus on those - eventually as they get older take leadership roles in those activities."
