How to Write a Winning Personal Statement Workshop (no need to sign up)
Tuesday, October 23, 12:15-1:05 p.m.
Building 10, Room 103
Presenter: Gwen Spencer, Director of Educational Planning & Advising
Transfer students are often asked to write a personal essay to help the baccalaureate schools become acquainted with them in ways different from courses, grades, test scores, and other objective data. The essay gives students an opportunity to demonstrate their ability to organize thoughts and express themselves. The statement might describe educational goals, significant experiences, school and community activities, multicultural experiences and other information.
Students will leave the workshop with valuable tips on how to write an effective personal statement for their transfer application.
