The Requirements: 1 essay of 300 words
Supplemental Essay Type(s): Oddball, Community, Diversity
Admissions wants to know about the code by which you live. This is an opportunity for you to provide Lewis & Clark with a phrase or motto to remember you by. Puns and all manner of wordplay are welcome and encouraged! Can you boil your life down to one recurrent theme? Have your webbed toes propelled you through endless laps at the swimming pool? Has your practice of dyeing your own hair defined your personal brand since the age of 12? Through what lens do you view your life? How do you want to be known?
When have you encountered diversity? How have you engaged meaningfully with others who are different from you? Has your identity ever been the topic of a discussion? Let’s be real, we are in a polarized chapter of American history, and it’s important to be able to have conversations with people who come from different places, upbringings, and cultures. Most colleges and universities want to foster productive conversations between their students and create a community that is inclusive of all its members, and Lewis & Clark doesn’t seem to be any different. Tell admissions about a time when you engaged with a fish from another pond.
