Fall is in the air, and if you’re a high school junior or senior, that means college applications. Applying to college can seem like a daunting task -- but one thing that you shouldn’t worry about is the application essay. This 2-part workshop will explain what colleges are looking for in those essays they ask you to write. Applying for a couple of scholarships? The workshop will address those, too. By the end of the class series, you should have a good grasp of what makes a solid essay—arguably the most important part of any application.
Parents, this class series is free—it’s completely funded by the Bartram Trail Branch Friends of the Library. Pre-registration is requested, and can be arranged by calling the library at 827-6960.
