College Application Essay Workshop   REGISTER
Camp Description The College Application Essay Workshop helps high school seniors tackle one of the most difficult and elusive aspects of the college admissions process: the personal essay. College Admissions have grown significantly more competitive over the past several years, and a thoughtful and memorable essay can help a student's application stand out in the crowd. Students will read sample essays, discuss various writing techniques, and craft their own application essay(s). For students who know where they will be applying to college, please bring school-specific applications to class. Undecided students may work on essays using the questions from the Common Application, which is used by more than 250 independent colleges and universities. Students who attend the course will also receive help throughout the fall application process. Additionally, while the primary goal of the class is to have a completed college application essay, students may work on scholarship application essays as well. A minimum of 10 students is required.
Mr. Radosta just completed his 13th year at HSP, teaching High School Literature, Advanced Composition, and AP English Language and Composition.
