Approaching the Application Season (2018)

In line with helping students achieve their full potential, UniGlo hosted Approaching the Application Season to help Bangkok’s rising seniors prepare for the upcoming fall application season. The event prepared students for obtaining letters of recommendation, good essay-writing techniques, and more through small-group mentorship with volunteer college student facilitators. These facilitators and speakers came from varied backgrounds ranging from engineering at a large public institution to social sciences at an elite liberal arts college, allowing students to talk to those who best represented their interests. Approaching the Application Season draws upon the stories of successful applicants to inform the next generation of students, who will soon start their own application  process.
