College Essay Intensive:
Where and How Do I Start?
For Rising Seniors
For many students, the essay is the most daunting element of the college application process. In this supportive two-session class, students will define their values, brainstorm essay topics, freewrite, and learn how to move from idea to draft. We will also discuss the Common App, going over its components, and talking about supplemental essays.
Dates: August 8 and 10, 5 pm to 7:30 pm. Two sessions
Class directed by Sarah Crow and Kathleen O’Shea
