Hey there, Cocoon Club! See the info below for a college admissions workshop happening this Thursday, October 26th by the UPenn Admissions team:
Do your applications have you going 😬? We've been there! Students often have questions on the Activities & Impact section, so we're hosting a webinar this week to help walk you through creating your strongest application.
Each year, we ask students to tell us about how they occupy time outside of class and how they contribute to their communities. During this session, admission officers will discuss how to complete your activities section and provide tips on how to choose and articulate your community contributions. This is a very popular event so claim your spot now!
