You’re almost a month into the new semester. Things have settled down, you’ve got your routine down pat and you’re feeling comfortable with your course load. This is good!
Now let’s give you something else to do. DCCCD is looking for student bloggers and you’re the perfect candidate.
I know what you’re thinking. “Why would I want to write more than I have to?” I hear you. But!
This summer, LeCroy Center Provost Dr. Pam Quinn attended the Harvard Institute for Educational Management (IEM) and she learned one of the things students most want to accomplish in college is improving their writing skills.
We all want to improve our writing, right? Right? Right. This is your chance to get ahead of the curve.
Plus, in addition to you getting published on the district’s blog, your work could also be included in the DCCCD eNewsletter and on its social media accounts.
You’ll write at least three posts each semester. Simple stuff, really. To apply, write a 200- to 300-word post about college. Anything you want about college. A paper you’re writing, one of your projects, your major, the advantages of distance learning, your ups, your downs, etc. Check out what other
student bloggers have written about for some inspiration.
When you’re done, just email your blog post to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then you just sit back and wait to hear how awesome your post was.
(This ended up being 242 words. You can do this!)
