Write a 500-word essay to explain your interest in the program. What do you envision for college? How do you imagine participating in the University Honors Program in ways that support not only your goals, but also the mission and values of the University Honors Program? Be specific about what this means to you as an individual given your experiences and/or your vision for college. Be aware that you do not need to address each element of the mission and values. Instead, use them as a point of departure to tell us more about your intellectual curiosity and/or academic leadership past, present, or future.
