If you do not answer these questions, you will not be considered for OU leadership, community service and major-based scholarships.
We hope that this will allow you to focus more intently on crafting one strong essay that reflects you and your experiences.
If you are applying using the Centenary application, please submit an essay based on one of the Common Application prompts below.
We recognize that many students apply to colleges using the Common Application, and that you may already be working on an essay as part of this process.
As such, Centenary will accept essays based on Common Application prompts regardless of which application you use.
The college application process can be stressful and sometimes overwhelming.
A great way to stand out from the crowd and boost an application for a “reach” school is with a strong essay.
And remember: you only need to write one essay, not seven. Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it.
If this sounds like you, then please share your story. The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Describe a problem you’ve solved or a problem you’d like to solve.
