College Essay Writing Workshop March 27, 2:30 p.m.
Platitudinous droning, however polished, will not get you into the college of your choice. University admissions officers want to know who you are and how you think, not read your affirmation that “music is the universal language.” Finding your own voice and unique content for your essay will not only help your application rise to the top, it will improve your writing overall. Come to a free, 90-minute workshop to explore personal anecdotes, moral dilemmas and self-branding to get you started.
