Presentation topic: Writing a Compelling Statement of Purpose

When: 12:00 pm PT on Thursday, October 21st 
(restricted to Caltech email addresses)

If you're in the process of applying to graduate school and would like some support for drafting or revising your Statement of Purpose, the Hixon Writing Center will be hosting an online presentation next week to share tips and strategies. Topics will include understanding the purpose and audience of the SOP, developing your communication goals, making meaning out of your experiences, tips for drafting and organizing, and strategies for customizing and revising your statement. 

If you have already attended a prior presentation (e.g. during SURF) on SOPs by the HWC or have worked with our staff as a part of our "personal training" sessions, the material covered in this workshop will be similar. However, if you have not yet had a chance to take advantage of our support, this presentation gives you a chance to do so.
