College Admition

My education in New York has allowed me to find so many new aspects of my self, my cultures (my two cultures of East and West), and my languages. My time here has also allowed me to see how each of these aspects relates to the others. Because of the rewards I have already gained, I hope to continue my education here. I am particularly drawn to Vassar College for a number of reasons. I want to stay in New York, near my guardian and younger brother. I also feel that Vassar’s size is ideal. Your student-faculty ratio of 12 to 1 is a very important advantage for me, and I think I would benefit immensely from such focused academic study.

Finally, an undergraduate place at Vassar would allow me to experience a true liberal arts education in arts and sciences, because I think the undergraduate years should be spent on a broad amount of subject matter. I am currently enrolled in AP physics and AP computer science courses, and I hope to continue to pursue study in the natural sciences and in computer science (which is very important wherever you are in the world today). In addition, study at Vassar will allow my interest in languages and communication to flourish and grow. I want to learn more in the field of foreign language, especially Chinese and Japanese. I am also interested in Vassar’s B.A. in Communication program, and I am particularly interested in the areas of Public Relations and/or Speech Communication. I would love to take courses through this department, for example, courses like Interpersonal Communications, Intercultural Communications, and Communications Theory. I may want to explore communication as it relates to computer science and technology as well.

Vassar University has all the opportunities I am looking for in continuing my education, developing my identity, and contributing culturally and academically. I hope the language here, the written words of English of this essay, have enough power to communicate my desire and readiness to attend Vassar and excel there.
