I started to accept that people were experimenting with drugs and alcohol once I hit my freshman year. By the end of sophomore year, most everyone who did anything was pretty open about it. It wasn’t ever a huge deal to me. I didn’t do it, but I didn’t hate the people who...

Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay
1184 Words
Endicott College asked specifically on their application to write about success and what it meant to you as a student: My father once said to me, “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.” He recalled hearing Tom Brady say this a few years back (although I think Tom may have borrowed it from Seneca, a first-century Roman philosopher). I’ve more often heard it stated that “Success is when preparation meets opportunity.” This quote, whatever its origin, has always resonated with...

My extracurricular activities in college, and why I chose them
413 Words
Orientation - I chose to be a part of orientation honestly because my mom told me she thought it would be something I would enjoy. I didn't really trust that I would like it, but applied anyway just to see what would happen. It ended up being my favorite part of Merrimack because it's where I met all of my closest friends through being an orientation leader. It gave me more confidence as a person and led me to take more chances in the coming years of college life. Merrimack Programming Board - I joined MPB because my First Year...
