College Essay Boot Camp is a one-week college/personal essay workshop, where students find their voices to create — start-to-finish — a polished, adaptable college essay for submission. Select student essays are published in the print and digital versions of ThreeSixty Magazine! This summer we are offering one virtual session of camp.

Over one week, you’ll learn about the different opportunities in media and communication, engage in related activities, hear from experienced journalists and communicators, and write a reported story that will be published in ThreeSixty Magazine!
