More than 180 students descended on Northeastern University on Saturday, October 17th to work on their college essays with our tutors, and they got a lot of help from us! Many students began the day without even an outline for their essay, yet left all with a final draft. As one student put it, “This helped so much! I’m now really confident in my essay and how much I’ve accomplished today.”
The event was popular with tutors as well — many commented that they found the opportunity to work with our students during such a critical moment in their educational career inspiring, and our College Essay Boot Camp tutors truly do change lives. These students don’t always have access to other forms of college prep help. 72% of students who attended this year were first generation Americans, and 82% of students who attended this year were on free or reduced-price lunch. After a record-breaking event, we hope to provide support to even more students next year!
