Hub Studio: Grad School Personal Statement Studio

Wednesday, October 27, 2021

This virtual studio will be focused on giving you the tips and tools to assist you in crafting a compelling personal statement. You should attend this virtual studio if you are not sure where to start, stuck on a section, or just looking for a quick review. You can bring a copy of your statement if you have one, an outline you are working on, or just the writing prompt you are working through.

Studio Format Information: Virtual Hub studios are structured in a way that allows for you to drop in via Zoom anytime between 4 and 5:30pm. We will provide helpful digital tools that focus on developing personal statements. Hub coaches will be on hand in breakout rooms to answer quick questions and provide short reviews of your drafts in support of you crafting a compelling personal statement. We will also provide information on the ways that the Hub, Newnan, and other university services can continue to support you on this part of the application process.
