Additional Question on Common App

It is no longer a rumor! The Common Application has created a new question that can be found on the Additional Information section of your application. This is an opportunity for students to share anything that they would like to regarding our recent "social distancing" experience in 250 words or less. Be aware that this is an optional question, but a good way to use blank space for showing strength, motivation and courage during a time of uncertainty!

"Community disruptions such as COVID-19 and natural disasters can have deep and long-lasting impacts. If you need it, this space is yours to describe those impacts. Colleges care about the effects on your health and well-being, safety, family circumstances, future plans, and education, including access to reliable technology and quiet study spaces.

Do you wish to share anything on this topic? Y/N

Please use this space to describe how these events have impacted you."
