Library Hour: Making your College Essay Shine – June 18, 2019
Geared towards rising high school seniors and their parents/guardians, journalist Joyce Pellino Crane leads a discussion about beginning and organizing your story; adding tension to keep the reader interested; moving the story forward to demonstrate emotional growth; and ending it on a serendipitous note. Ms. Crane is joined by Troy Lazaro, Assistant Director of Multicultural Recruitment at UMass Lowell, who offers insights into what a college admissions director looks for when considering applicants.
