Centre College 2020-21 Application Essay Question Explanation

The Requirements: 1 essay of 250 words

Supplemental Essay Type(s): Why

Briefly and specifically tell why you have decided to apply to Centre? (250 words)

Admissions wants to know why you’re applying to Centre. They want specifics, they want details, they want you to spill ALL THE TEA. But they want you to keep it brief. So, begin by taking a moment to think. Why are you applying to Centre? Have you always wanted to attend a small liberal arts school? Will Centre’s Classical Studies major allow you to further compare Homer’s Iliad and Virgil’s Aeneid?? Are you excited about the internship opportunities available at Centre? No matter what your reasoning is, if you follow Centre’s directions closely and build a bridge from your past experiences and interests to your future plans and goals, you’ll be sure to distinguish yourself from other similarly qualified applicants.
