Deadlines

Nov 14

The history of words and phrases is something I typically take for granted (there are some interesting ones out there), but recently I’ve been thinking about the background of the word ‘deadline.’ According to the internet, always a credible source, it started during the civil war in reference to a point in a prison camp where prisoners would be shot if they crossed- harsh right? Yet, it evolved over the year and we apply this term to many facets of life- newspaper printing deadlines, voter registration deadlines and, to get to my point, COLLEGE APPLICATION DEADLINES.

While you certainly won’t be shot at if you don’t adhere to the college application deadlines, you may be missing out on a crucial college experience! So if Illinois at all interest you, why not turn in the application before the deadline. We won’t know to give you the chance to be a student here if you never apply.

December 1st- that is your Illinois application deadline! Make sure you meet it!
