Instructor: Mr. Joe Fumusa, Associate Director of College Counseling at Park Tudor

Isn’t senior year too busy as it is? Give yourself a head start and work on your essays for your college applications this summer! During this seminar, we will take a look at the types of essays that colleges require, critically evaluate successful examples of essays (and those not so successful), and write and edit several college essays (from the questions on the Common Application) that you will have ready for the fall. We will review the components of an outstanding essay – especially the unique strengths and talents you would bring to various schools. Finally, we will peruse college websites and examine their cultures to gain further insight for your work. A college admissions representative will also visit to share thoughts on the entire admissions process and the role the college essay plays in that process.
