College Application Essays

Fell in a Fountain All around me were beauty, nature and tourists. There I was in the Jardin de Tuileries, across the street from the Louvre, poking at boats in a fountain with a stick. It was at this moment my life changed. I didn't know it then but I do now. I fell in. I toppled over the protective barrier and plunged bad-haircut-first into the depths of the unknown, centuries old water. I surfaced to fish nibbling at my...

I found my current favorite musician through an old favorite musician. The old favorite musician was Kanye West, particularly the College Dropout and Late Registration albums. Those two albums showed Kanye’s great ability to tell a story through song. He questioned commonplace customs in a very catchy and pleasing way. From Kanye West I latched onto Kids These Days, which was a hybrid band from your own city of Chicago, consisting of a variety of sounds. They disbanded recently,...

Promiscuous Fish There are so many kinds of jokes. Puns, knock knocks, skits, one liners and personal narratives. There are jokes about race, sexuality, promiscuity and current events. A whole lot of them are funny jokes that have spanned generations. Abbott and Costello’s “Who's on first” still holds up today, as does “More Cowbell” or Chris Farley’s “Chippendales Audition.” Some jokes don’t need anger or near nudity to be funny, though. There are some jokes that are...

Lehigh University is the right school for me. The two times I’ve visited, both to see my cousin, Kit Landry, and to tour the school, I have found the environment natural and enthusiastic. We are all aware of the great education Lehigh offers all of its students, but I think that the way Lehigh goes about the education process is perfect for me. Lehigh is a place where I can take advantage of programs like the integrated learning experience...

My favorite riddle comes from the civilization of Sumer, which originated around 6000 years ago in 4000 B.C. “There is a house, one goes in blind and comes out seeing. What is it?” Upon hearing this you think an operating room where people could have laser eye surgery to repair their sense of sight. On second thought, you realize they probably didn’t have laser eye surgery in 4000 B.C. and a riddle should a have a much more witty and...

After I had just visited Lehigh University I would tweet “The hills will not defeat me, I will get my freshman fifteen even if campus is on Mt. Everest.” I’d choose this tweet because most people, after visiting campus, have comments on the hills and how much more exercise it will be than a flat campus. Not a whole lot of people will expect you to take the hills as an obstacle in your path to gain weight. Media...

My favorite class in high school was Principles of Engineering. In it we covered most sections of engineering at a very basic level. We learned to solder, built mousetrap cars and made potato guns out of PVC pipe. The project that I enjoyed the most was building a bridge with the biggest ratio of weight held to weight of the bridge. Figuring out which design would be the strongest and lightest felt challenging and intriguing. It really was this project...

I have lived all my life in a suburban town in Connecticut and have never really experienced life outside of New England. The fact that Tulane is just a public bus ride away from the city of New Orleans, which has one of the most positive and historic cultures of any city in America, is exactly what I am looking for. The ability to become accustomed to and immerse myself in a brand new and unique culture is very appealing. ...

In college I want to take every opportunity that comes my way, and that includes learning outside of the classroom. I think that the University of Chicago is a place where I can do that. The study abroad program, specifically the civilization requirement, seems to be a really good way for me to immerse myself in a foreign society and understand how said society developed. I want my learning to expand my outlook. I grew up in a suburb of...

Easton Superfans It’s a small league but a dedicated one. We rarely have issues with lineups going unset or trades going unanswered. There’s no money on the line, just an overbearing sense of pride if you succeed and utter humiliation if you lose. The Easton Superfans, a fantasy football league, while working under an unimaginative league name, is halfway through its third year of competition, and as the commissioner I am striving to bring the league to a...

My school is Northeastern University in Boston, MA. It is without a doubt the best college in Boston. Bigger than Emerson, smarter than BU, better location than BC, and the best nightlife of any school in Boston. On top of all of that...
