Student Recommendation Letter Samples. Sometimes it's hard to find the right tone when you're writing recommendation letters.
If you've been asked to provide a recommendation letter for a student, the assumption is that the student will expect a glowing reference.
Doing so can be a challenge...deciding on the right combination of words and how much you say is a challenge, too.
Consequently, it can be difficult and time consuming to write a good reference letter when you need one.
However, a sample letter, like the one below makes easier.
To Whom It May Concern:
As a Dean of Students of [name of school] it is my pleasure to work with students eager to learn for the sake of learning. [applicant] is one of them.
[applicant] is an active student and is involved in many activities and programs; band, drama club, dedicated member of the Bay Area community and has donated countless hours of his time to the Center. He has not only worked with members of the community, he has also helped to implement plans and programs that will enrich the lives of those around him.
[applicant's] leadership and organizational skills have been invaluable to these programs, most of which have been started from the ground up. For example, the children of the Bay Area are now able to benefit from a multitude of new after-school and tutoring programs, while the elderly members of our community can now apply for grocery deliveries that did not exist previously.
In my opinion, [applicant's] unwavering devotion to his community exemplifies strong moral fiber and character. He is a trustworthy individual and would be an excellent candidate for your school.
