Writing Summer Institute: Introduction to College Writing
For over twenty years, UCLA Writing Programs has helped undergraduates successfully meet the challenges of a university education. Through a three week Writing Summer Institute, UCLA's highly regarded writing specialists will now help college bound students prepare for those challenges. It will address such essential tasks as the timed essay exam and the effective e-mail. All activities will demystify the unstated differences between college and high school writing and research. The program will also attend to the college application process, including the application essay. The Writing Summer Institute is ideal for the ambitious high school student who wants to start a step ahead.
The Writing Summer Institute: Introduction to College Writing is designed for high school students in grades 11 and 12 (rising juniors and seniors). The program is first-come, first-served.
