Area students, parents invited to UW college application seminar
UW-Sheboygan to host workshop on Sept. 8
Getting into college these days is a highly competitive process. Often times, the college application is seen as just a minor piece of the entire process.
Actually, what a student shares in his or her application essay – and the quality of that essay -- could decide whether or not that student will receive an acceptance letter.
Area high school seniors and their parents are invited to the University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan for a special UW System Application Seminar on Wednesday, September 8, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Room 2114 (Wombat Room).
The seminar will provide students with an opportunity to practice writing an effective UW application statement, which could help further their efforts into getting into the university of their choice. Although the focus of the program will be applying to the University of Wisconsin System, the principles of writing an effective application essay apply to any institution of higher learning.
Ronaldo Cordeiro, UW-Sheboygan Student Services advisor, will lead the workshop. Cordeiro has more than nine years experience working with admissions counselors from various UW institutions and has attended in-depth admissions seminars with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the University of Wisconsin.
Cordeiro will assist students throughout the workshop as they write successful application statements and will evaluate actual examples of student statements. The seminar also will provide students with the skills necessary to write scholarship application statements, which could mean thousands of dollars in tuition assistance.
Early registration is encouraged as the seminar is limited to 75 participants. All those interested are asked to RSVP by calling the UW-Sheboygan Student Services Office at (920) 459-6633 by September 7 or RSVP online here.
