UH-Hilo announces college application essay course


The College of Continuing Education and Community Service (CCECS) at the University of Hawai’i at Hilo will conduct a one-day workshop entitled “Jumpstart Your College Application Essay,” on Saturday, July 18 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. in UCB 113. The cost is $50.

Frances Kai-Hwa Wang, a writer, speaker, activist and multicultural educator at the University of Michigan, and author of “Where Lava Meets the Sea – Asian Pacific American Postcards from Hawai’i,” will conduct the course described as “a college application essay boot camp.” Students will employ timed writings and discussion to inventory their high school experiences, analyze various college application (and scholarship) essay questions, write a good first draft, and discuss editing techniques. Participants should bring a laptop, notebook, pen, and the application questions of the colleges/scholarships to which they want to apply.

For more information or to register, please call CCECS at (808) 974-7664 or email
