Why College X - Architect of My Education

Essay Prompt

Why Brown? (100 word limit)

Sample Essay

What I appreciate and love most about Brown is that the University allows you to “be the architect of your own education.” Because I have such diverse curiosities, the open curriculum allows me to explore them all and will keep me from getting bored. A schedule of “Constitutional Law: Individual Rights,” “Kitchen Chemistry” and “Introduction to Oceanography” suits me. Plus it actually prepares me for life because as my Dad say, “The world may be driven forward by technology and science, but we only know what to do with those things from our study of the humanities.”
