College Essay Revision Workshop:  This session is designed for those who already have a college essay and need help revising it for submission. 

Saturday, November 12:  9:00-12 p.m/ Location TBD 

 

Workshop Agenda:

 

  • We will discuss what the college essay is, what it needs to accomplish, how to connect to your future college and career,  and how to brainstorm topics/ ideas.  Then, you will complete an outline for your college essay and write a rough draft. Finally, we will review how to create and access your Common App account.  

       ● We will also revise the rough draft of your college essay until it shines. 

 

If time, we will review the ‘How To’s’ of asking for a letter of recommendation; including how to write an email asking for a letter and how to manage the process.

 

Prior to your session:

If you have not created a Common App account yet, it is a good idea to create your account and become familiarized with the platform.

 

What to Bring:

Your laptop (and a power cord), snacks,  and a water bottle.

 

We will have a break for lunch.  You may bring a lunch, but there are also places to eat around the library.
