Reminder: Writing Prompt #4 from Dr. Hancock

Hi students, and hope you return home from the Polaris Mall today with most of your shopping done now, and that you are finding the things you need for family, friends, and yourself. We will have a few small chances more, but now our shopping time will be very limited from now on.

Tonight, please remember to complete the assignment for Charles (Dr. Hancock). He wants you to just write a rough draft of your individual three-paragraph Statement of Intent. This could be used someday as practice or as a draft for actually applying to graduate school, and is a very nice thing to practice in writing as it is so vital to your chances of getting into a good school.

Charles has agreed to read the statements and provide feedback to you. He by no means expects them to be perfect or lengthy at this point, but he just wants you to get started and to help you form ideas for your Statement of Intent in the future, when you will spend much more time on this important piece of writing.

This assignment should be sent to Charles either tonight, or by tomorrow, Monday, at 5 p.m., if you wish to get comments back from Dr. Hancock before you leave Ohio. Please send him your three paragraphs at

Good luck!
