Sophomore College Application Questions

What are the reasons you want to participate in this particular seminar? Faculty are interested in finding out your reasons for being interested in the seminar topic; there's no right answer- there are as many reasons as there are students who apply. Read the course description carefully; identify for yourself what caught your attention. Reflect on your long-term or recently-discovered interests, or how this seminar experience will build on your educational goals. Be specific and offer details that demonstrate thoughtfulness about your interests and goals as they relate to this seminar.

Students describe the diversity of perspectives they found in their classmates as one of the most important parts of Sophomore College. What particular contribution do you feel you could offer to this seminar? In your response, you are welcome to include your personal, familial, and cultural background; previous academic experience (college or pre-college); relevant extracurricular activities, including community work you may have done; and any social and work skills you've acquired that would make you a good member of this group and a contributor to the overall class experience.
