Campanile's College Essay Workshops are exclusively reserved for students enrolled in our Colonnade program.  There is no additional fee to attend the workshops and students are encouraged to participate as often as possible.  With a quiet space to work in our Borel Place Center, and lots of support and guidance from our Writing Associate and Assitant, students make tremendous progress through the many essays required for college applications.  Registration is available only to current seniors. Writing sessions include "mini-lessons" on writing - tips from grammar to storytelling and exclusive access to our Campanile produced Write On college essay instructional videos and curriculum.
