Most people – parents and students – think of writing the College Application Essay as a major, intimidating event. But it can be a non-stressful, even enjoyable process and this session will show you how to make that happen. The essay is not about impressing admissions officers with grand accomplishments; it’s a story that tells them about you. This low-key workshop will help you develop several solid topic ideas, encourage writing skills to use going forward and you may have the start of a first draft. Class size is limited, so there will be time for one-on-one meetings.
