College Essay Workshop
This workshop will give rising seniors a foundation for writing effective college application essays. The session will cover how essays are used in the application process, guidance on choosing topics, writing tips for personal statements and supplements, and Dos and Don’ts. Students will do brainstorming exercises for the personal statement and will receive a one-on-one follow-up session, as well as a suggested timeline from topic selection through final edits. The class will be led by Becky Claster, an independent educational consultant, in partnership with the College Essay Guy, Ethan Sawyer.
