    Ever wonder if the colleges you send recommendation letters to read them? Do you have teachers and coaches asking you what colleges want to see in them? Do your students know what works well in a resume or personal statement? Join us for a workshop-style session that will go through tips and tricks on successful application materials and how you can better advise those who write them and request them.
