Option 1:
Given what you know about UCSC so far, what advice would you have for high school seniors who are contemplating attending this university next year? What factors would you suggest they consider when making their decision about where to attend college? What would you say to try to prepare them for the transition to university life? What information do you know now that you wish you had when you were deciding which university to attend? How might that information changed your decision about college? Write a full 2 page response. You may write this assignment in essay format, or in the form of a letter to graduating high school seniors.

As noted in the syllabus, please format ALL of your papers in 12 point, Times New Roman font with 1″ margins. This will standardize the amount of writing for every assignment. Your grade may be penalized if you do not follow these formatting guidelines.

Also bear in mind that the volume of writing you produce is not a substitute for quality. In other words, ideas that ramble on without a clear purpose will not garner you extra points (and in fact, if you are way off topic, may lose you points). Writing concisely is valued far more than ‘fluff.’
