It's all about the essay
During the summer, United Way of Greater Mercer County (UWGMC), held 4 college admission essay seminars to help students become closer to getting into their college of choice. Students learned techniques from Debbie Meola, College Consultant, on how to write a compelling college admissions essay. The response from the parents has been a positive one, "My son is going to be junior this fall and signed up for the workshop at the Lawrence Library. He had a great experience and found it very useful. We are trying to get him prepared for the future and this was very helpful. This opened up his mind to ideas for the college application essays," said Carole Bursac, Investors Bank VP.
This fall, UWGMC, will be hosting additional seminars (free of cost) to serve college bound seniors at Boys and Girls Clubs of Mercer County and Millhill Child and Family Development.
