College Application Essays

In early January of my sophomore year, my friend Sunny, a senior at the time, approached me with a wide grin and asked, “Would you like to help make dumplings for the school on Chinese New Year?” Without even checking my schedule, I knew it was something I wanted to participate in, so I immediately responded with an enthusiastic “Yes!” Sunny and I share many passions: the love of horses, spending time in the garden, baking dessert, and our birth...

The distinct Certificate in Leadership Program sparked my interest in Centre College. Throughout Midland, the leadership roles and opportunities I have had were crucial to my experience and have encouraged me to better my leadership skills in college. I like this program because it tracks a student’s completion of career and leadership activities that I believe college students should take advantage of anyway. With the certificate, there is an incentive for taking advantage of as many opportunities as possible. ...

Occidental dedicates itself to hands on learning. One of the coolest ways Occidental shows this commitment is through the Blyth Fund, a student-managed financial portfolio. My current academic interests are finance and economics. I plan to expand my knowledge and experience in these subjects at Oxy. After learning about the Blyth fund, I immediately knew it is something I want to participate in. It is good practice for a career in finance or managing personal funds. My favorite part of...

Over the summer I attended a program in Business and Entrepreneurship at Yale and met many people from all over the world. A girl in my group had applied ED to Wake Forest, and one of the group leaders was a current student. At first I didn’t know much about Wake Forest, but for the girl in my group, Wake Forest was clearly her top choice and she was enthusiastic about the school’s values and resources. Hearing her...

Last February, I visited CMC on sunny day. Students were gathered in groups laughing and enjoying the atmosphere. As my tour group walked past students, they smiled. We were welcomed into the Athenaeum with rice krispies and cranberry juice. Anoush, my tour guide, told stories about her favorite speakers at the Ath, and even having a chance to share a meal with them. Listening to Anoush talk about her experience and learning more about her passions was inspiring. She clearly...

The first year classes The Engaged Citizen and Exploration sound like a great foundation to the liberal arts curriculum at Hendrix. I like that Exploration starts from the basics of the college transition but also delves into important things like career explorations. The Engaged Citizen class utilizes the liberal arts idea of interdiciplinary learning. Of the 2015-16 Engaged Citizen courses, the one that interests me the most is Economic and Political Theory. I imagine this class full of experiential based...

I had never heard of Oberlin, but last year a friend, Emma, who was admitted Early decision, spoke with great excitement when I asked her about it. She explained that Oberlin had a conservatory for music and cool traditions like art rentals, aspects that were important to her. After she told me about those, she explained how Oberlin was similar to Midland in their sustainability practices, an aspect really important to me. At Midland, we use sustainable practices ranging from...

Throughout my time at Midland, I have been able to use the outdoors as a resource and supplement to my education. My high school curriculum takes an experiential approach to learning that utilizes the greater campus, something Whitman is also known for. Whether that means camping out at a water trough to perform water testing for chemistry, or learning about the carbon and nitrogen cycle in Midland 101 on our organic farm, learning is more memorable with an experience. At Whitman,...

I’ve heard the history of the Claremont colleges six times. Still, the most inspiring part of the story is the founding of Scripps. I love that Scripps was created as an institution to empower women after their triumph in the fight for suffrage. Though equality may never be fully achieved, Scripps will continue to empower women to be leaders, something I want to take part in. At Scripps, I plan to pursue my interest in economics. Though I am...

One day during a passing period my Sophomore year, my friend told me I had received a package. I was extremely excited because I typically don’t receive packages nor was I expecting anything. In the remaining minutes of the passing period, I sprinted to the mail area to retrieve this mystery package. The package was from a college I had never heard of called Carleton. They had send me a royal blue colored frisbee. To this day, that is...
