GREENWICH, Conn. -- With the Nov. 1 college application deadline looming, students and parents may want to avail themselves of a free seminar offered by education experts in Greenwich.

The program, "Taking the Stress Out of the College Essay," is set for Wednesday, Oct. 7, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Arch Street Greenwich Teen Center, 100 Arch St. in Greenwich.

“The essay need not be viewed as a daunting task,” said Hilary Stark, associate director of College Consulting for Greenwich Education Group. Stark, who is conducting the seminar. "In reality, it gives students a chance to express themselves and provide insight into who they are. It can be the most personal and powerful part of the entire application," Stark related.

The essay offers students a chance to grab the attention of college admissions officers and explain what makes them unique and why they would be a great addition to the college’s student body.

But rather than becoming overwhelmed by this part of the application process, students can use a well-structured approach to effectively show themselves in the best light possible.

The seminar will cover such topics as choosing the most appropriate prompt questions on the Common Application as well as supplemental essay, selecting the right topics, using the right tone, style and approach, organizing the drafts and final versions and avoiding common mistakes.
