Brainstorming Your Personal Statement - Jacki Skole

Brainstorming Your Personal Statement

Brainstorming Your Personal Statement

For many students, coming up with a topic is the most challenging part of the personal statement writing process. Fortunately, there are brainstorming activities designed to help students think more deeply about who they are and all they have to offer a university. In this hour-long, boot camp-style workshop students will:

  • Complete two brainstorming activities
  • Learn organizational patterns for structuring their essays
  • Discover what separates a great essay from a good one
  • Leave with additional brainstorming activities

This workshop will run via Zoom in June and July.

Parents are welcome to join the workshop. Understanding what colleges are looking for can help you better guide your student as he or she journeys through the writing process. 

Register for your session by choosing a date from the calendar.
