View Lead Curriculum Developer's Bio

This course is offered to rising 10th — 12th graders.

This course introduces students to the various forms of writing they will encounter while applying for college admissions and college scholarships. Students will learn what strategies to pursue and what errors to avoid as well as examine actual examples of college admissions essay prompts and discuss successful and unsuccessful responses to those prompts. 

Students will practice writing college application essays and will leave the workshop with a complete draft. Students will work individually and in groups and receive individual guidance and feedback from their peers, the instructor, and current college students.

The class will meet in the Pearce Center for Professional Communication, home to many of Clemson’s award-winning Writing Across the Curriculum initiatives. In every year that it has awarded the distinction, US News & World Report has named Clemson a “Top School for Writing in the Disciplines.”

This workshop is offered during Session 2 (June 15, 2014 — June 18, 2014). Click here to view the schedule.
