Write about something you know, and dont try to use big words if they aren't necessary. Use a great hook at the beginning but it's just an essay dont get carried away, just stay away from "Have you ever heard about...Well I'm going to tell you about." or stupid introductions like that. Make sure you use transitions in between paragraphs. the last sentence of a paragraph should relate to the first sentence in the next paragraph.
depending on the college, most have a writing center that have people there to help you get your ideas out on paper. I suggest going there if you need help in the technical aspect of how to write it, if it is ideas on an open essay (you pick the topic) then just think about something you truely enjoy or are knowledgable about.
