Adulting 101 for Teens – Writing A Winning College Essay (teens, ages 12-18)

Welcome to Adulting 101 for Teens, a series of programs to help teens develop life skills to transition to adulthood. Our final presentation in the Winter/Spring series will teach teens how to approach college essays and is on Tuesday April 7th at 6:30 pm in meeting room A.

Ever wonder what it takes to write a compelling, effective college essay that will make you stand out in the college admissions process? Many great kids write average (even bad) college essays–essays about “Volunteering changed my life” or “how my trip to Europe broadened my cultural horizons.” Better tales are there for the writing.

In this seminar, Collegewise Counselor, Liz Pack, will address what admissions officers really look for in great college essays and offer suggestions for finding and sharing your best stories. You won’t want to miss it!

Liz Pack’s Bio:

After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Liz worked in the UNC Office of Undergraduate Admissions as an admissions counselor and fell in love with information sessions and providing advice about the college process. Looking for more experience in higher education, she traveled to UT Austin to complete her master’s degree in education and spent time as an admissions counselor in UT’s Office of Admissions.

Though she’s located in Austin, Liz is not just a UT Austin expert. While Collegewise Austin students are accepted at UT at five times the national admit rate, they also receive acceptances from universities all over the country! Our students have recently been admitted to the University of Virginia, Barnard, NYU, Rice, and Texas A&M.

Adulting 101 For Teens (ages 12-18) – Buying A Car

Welcome to our series designed to help teens develop life skills and knowledge to transition to adulthood. We will have presenters on many topics the first Tuesday of every month, and our Winter/Spring series will run January – April.

Meet us in March to discuss buying a car. Topics include things to consider before buying a car, buying vs. leasing, new vs. used, researching the car considering buying, selling old car, salesman tactics, and how to bargain on the price. By the end of this presentation you will be ready to buy a car at the best possible price.

Our presenter is Dean Allen who was able to retire six years ago at the age of 51, due to wise financial decisions. He enjoys sharing with young people how it was he was able to accomplish that during presentations, so they can do well with money and retire someday. He speaks at local high schools, colleges, and libraries. He is the author of the book: Make Me Rich: The Path to Financial Freedom for Your High School / College Student which is available to be checked out from the local author collection at The Round Rock Public Library.  

More information on his presentations can be found at his website.
