Personal Statements Workshop

Join the Graduate Writing Center on November 13!

What should I write about?

Do they want me to tell my life story? Do I have to tell them why I want to go here? What am I supposed to do? These may be questions you ask yourself when looking at an application that calls for a personal statement.

Many personal statements for graduate applications, grant applications, etc. are wide open essays. There is no structure for writing a personal statement. However, the Graduate Writing Center can help you figure out how to write an effective personal statement and share the do's and don'ts of writing a personal statement in this workshop.

Join us on Wednesday, November 13 from 4:30PM-5:30PM!

About the workshop

Graduate Writing Center Consultants Melinda and Lauren will discuss tips on writing personal statements. They will share concrete steps they developed while writing their own personal statements. Feel free to bring in a draft of your personal statement or your application that calls for a personal statement.
