For students, the most daunting part of their college application can be the essay. What should they write about? Who reads it? Why am I writing this anyway? Are there topics they should avoid? After having read more than 30,000 essays over the course of her career, Julie Nelson, Assistant Dean of Admission at Xavier University, has the answers to these questions and more. Join her for a look at the good, the bad and the ugly of college essay writing.

This program is presented in partnership with Batavia Public Library, Geneva Public Library, Messenger Public Library, St. Charles Public Library, and West Chicago Public Library.
