Yes, it is that time of the year again: pumpkin spice lattes, a canvas of stained glass leaves as you walk to school, and applying to graduate or professional schools. To welcome in the season here at the WVU Writing Center, we have brought out our usual fall decorations, and we will be holding our annual Personal Statement Workshop on October 19th at 5pm in G02 Colson.
The workshop will begin with a short presentation from Dr. Catherine Gouge, a professor of Professional Writing and Editing in the English department and 2009 winner of the West Virginia University Foundation Outstanding Teacher Award. Her presentation will be followed by a workshop where students can generate ideas and get feedback on current personal statement drafts. Students are encouraged to come regardless of where they are in the drafting process, which includes brainstorming. The workshop is open for all WVU students applying to any program that requires a personal statement.
Because space is limited, interested students are encouraged to contact Ben Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
