    College Essay Writing Workshop - Virtual

    The college application process is complex and many colleges ask students to write personal statements and supplemental essays. How do you write an effective essay? Virtual Session 1: College Connectors counselors will educate students about the purpose of the Common Application personal statement, evaluate and discuss effective essays, and guide students through exercises to create a draft of their personal statement. There will be pre-work for this session. Between session 1 and 2, students will be expected to complete a first draft of their personal statement to receive written feedback. Virtual Session 2: We will evaluate sample supplemental essays and discuss how to answer common supplemental questions that demonstrate to colleges there is a strong mission, academic, or cultural fit between the student and the college. Students will have an option to have an essay review meeting with a College Connectors counselor by August 9th. A Zoom link and pre-work will be sent to those registered one week prior to class.
