“My First Day in College: Descriptive Essay,” a new guide to college admissions is now available from The College Board. This book is not only aimed at high school seniors but also middle school seniors and even those entering their junior or senior year. In fact, The College Board has even extended its good fortune guide to college applicants by offering it to prospective teachers too. The College Board is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing high school and college admission guidance. This book serves as the ideal companion to their website, which is designed to help students gain access to the best colleges in their area.
What do the students learn in this guide? The College Board’s “My First Day in College” guide helps students develop a solid college application that highlights all of their strengths and compensates for any weaknesses. There are two sections of the guide. One section provides sample college applications to apply for, as well as resources to study effectively. The second section will help students prepare for college-board interviews, complete college chemistry and biology requirements, write a powerful essay, and create a personal statement.
My First Day in College: Descriptive Essay talks about preparing for college interview. When students apply to a college, they must first meet with an admissions representative. During this meeting, the representative will review the students’ high school transcript and SAT or ACT scores. The counselor will then discuss the students’ application, as well as other important information regarding college-boarding standards. Students will then be asked to respond to a series of multiple-choice questions and write a descriptive essay.
Once the application is received, the counselor will review the students’ essay for insight into their writing and academic abilities. A student’s essay helps to establish not only their strong qualities but also their weaknesses, which will be brought to light throughout college interview. It also provides insight into a prospective student’s motivation, work ethic, and character.
My First Day in College: Creative Writing prompts students to use their creativity to express themselves in a meaningful way. The assignment will be to write a poem in response to a specific event that occurred in the student’s life. The poem can be descriptive, romantic, or simply inspirational. Writing the poetry will require research on the events that the poem is addressing. Reading literary works such as Moby Dick and The Adventures of Peter Rabbit will inspire students to create original literature.
My First Day in College: Photography is one of the most popular areas of study for students looking to take their shot in college life. This class will begin with a brief introduction on photography techniques and academic theory. Next, students will learn the basics of taking a professional photograph using a digital camera.

My First Day in College: Video production is another popular choice among students choosing to enter the workforce upon graduation.
