Happy March! 

Welcome to the sixth edition of the UniGlo Newsletter! With decisions coming out, we wanted to shine a spotlight on a few things we felt were important to share. Sorry we were gone last month—things admittedly got a little busy. But we're back now, and we hope you find something useful as always.
Article Spotlight
It's More than a Job
Ben Jones, former Director of Communications for MIT Admissions

A really great article. For anyone who received a "no" and is having a bit of a rough time, give this a read. Even if not, it might have something in there that's worth hearing.

Empower Yourself
Tools, resources, and bits we love

Airtable — a cloud collaboration service where spreadsheet meets database (think if Google Sheets and Trello had a really beautiful baby). Worth checking out for all your organizational needs!
Stay Focused

noises.online — extremely customizable ambient noises and relaxing sounds to boost your productivity, increase your focus, and quiet your mind. So many possible combinations...it's incredible.
Take a Break

Visualizing Drum Styles with Bouncing Balls — a fantastically satisfying 2-minute video by DoodleChaos. You're welcome.
Some final words...
Seniors: we're really, really happy for you, and are here for you—we know this time is filled with amazing and difficult news, and that things might seem crazy right now (there are only a couple months of school left, ever, agh!), but know that you're going to be alright. Make the most of these moments—you'll only ever experience them now! :)

Juniors: as your penultimate year of school is coming to an end, it might be time to start thinking about university and the choices you'll have to make next year! Check out this read by the WSJ on The Right Way to Choose a College—it might help get some gears turning.
 And that's it! 

We hope you found something inspiring, motivating, and/or useful. Thanks for sticking with us.

We're proud of you!
