The Office of Precollegiate Student Services will host three summer writing workshops to cover the outline, writing, and editing process for three Common Application essay prompts. Students will learn to tell their unique stories and use their own voice as they prepare application essays. 

OUTLINE

Friday, June 5
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
"Discuss an accomplishment, event, or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself or others"

WRITE

Friday, June 12
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
"The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?"

EDIT

Friday, June 19
1:00PM - 3:00PM
"Share an essay on any topic of your choice. It can be one you've already written, one that responds to a different prompt, or one of your own design."
