Growing up, I was always told by my mother, “We may not have what we want, but we always have what we need.” Though this refrain often helped, it never fully diffused the effects of growing up in a low income family. While my mother and father brought in enough to support us, previous debts from failed business ventures left us with little money for pleasure. This for years has fueled my determination to rise above class expectations and seek...

Why St. Anselm? (100 words): My current school, a still developing charter school, has a population of about 400 students. With such a small student body, relationships between students and between students and teachers are fostered and emphasized. When I visited St. Anselm, I was struck by the same feel of community.

-Please respond to the following in approximately 400-600 words: Wallace Bacon, a recipient of an honorary doctorate from Emerson College in 1975, wrote that the liberal arts, or humanities, “are concerned with the question of what makes life worth living. And that question concerns not simply oneself but others.

-What question do you think a selective college should ask and how would you answer it?(Limit: 150 words) It is crucial for colleges to ask what has influenced students to hold the values that they do today. This is important because it is relevant to everyone; no one can deny that the values that they hold have been influenced in some way, whether by family, friendships, the media, a book or movie, or another form entirely. I would reply that...
