The Writing Center has teamed up again with Western Washington University Admissions Director Jeanne Gaffney to help transfer students understand what information to include in an application essay and personal statement. The workshop is especially helpful for first year students who like to plan ahead and second year students who aren’t sure how to get started. All the information presented can easily be applied to any university application essay! See you there!
