Hub Workshop: Grad School Personal Statement

Wednesday, October 27, 2021
4:00-5:00 PM
Personal Statements allow schools to get an insight into your experiences and passions as they relate to the graduate program you are pursuing. Join Hub coaches for an hour-long session dedicated to providing the tools to assist you in crafting a compelling personal statement. You’ll also have individual work time to make progress on any edits to your personal statement. Feel free to bring a copy of your statement (if you have one), an outline you are drafting, or just the writing prompt you are working through.

-A liberal arts and/or sciences (LSA) student
-Needing to unpack the graduate school personal statement and develop strategies to showcase your personal, professional, and academic experiences
-Not sure where to start, stuck on a section, or just looking to evaluate what you have so far
