Each year the Missouri Association for College Admission Counseling (MOACAC) hosts a College Counselor Connection Conference in St. Louis and Kansas City. (The informal name of this conference is the “CUBE” Conference since it’s “C” cubed…get it?) The CUBE in St. Louis usually has 175 college counselors in attendance and 70 college representatives. Each college rep gets three minutes to give an update about his/her school. (They are SERIOUS about this time constraint and you’ll have the whistle blown at you when your three minutes are up!) In an effort to stand out and be memorable among so many school updates given to the college counselors in a short amount of time, I began to rhyme the TU update seven years ago and have been rhyming the TU updates every year since. The TU poetic updates have become a staple during the CUBE Conference, so I continue to write and present them. I’m sharing this year’s poetic update with you and will do so in future years as well. Realize as you’re reading it that it’s geared towards college counselors who work in high schools in and around the St. Louis, MO area. Enjoy!
