Are you taking the GRE in Fall 2016 or Spring 2017? The GRE requires students to write an Issue Essay and an Analysis Essay under timed conditions. But you are not alone. Join the Department of English for a free workshop on writing successful GRE essays on Tuesday, October 11, 2016, from 2:30 to 3:45 PM in the Performing Arts and Humanities Building, Room 428. Professor Tanya Olson will review what the expectations are for both essays, what factors lead essays toward upper half scores, and the process used to score essays. Students will leave with guidelines, tips, and opportunities to write practice essays. Please register in advance at the English Department myUMBC group. (There will only be a workshop offered in the Fall this year; there will be no workshop this Spring).
