Short Answer and Essay

What are five words that describe you?___________________________________________________________

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Essay Topics. The essay is another way for us to know you better. In addition, it offers you an opportunity to demonstrate your ability to organize thoughts and express yourself. The essay should be composed using your own words. Columbia College and other colleges and universities regularly check student compositions to determine if they contain material available on the Internet. Please select ONE of the topics below and write a 250-500 word essay about your chosen topic. Please use a separate sheet.

Option 1: If someone were to write a story about you 30 years from now, what would it contain about your career,



your personal accomplishments, and your life’s purpose?



Option 2: Think of two women, not related to you, who have inspired you. If you could spend the day with these



women, who would you choose and why? They may be living or may be a person from history.



Page 7



Option 3: Think of a significant experience in your life. It could be an achievement, an ethical dilemma,



or a challenge that involved risk and determination. Describe that experience and the lessons you learned.
