Holding College Chiefs to Their Words

The Wall Street Journal came up with a neat trick: asking college presidents to write essays from the application to their own college. Tough assignment!. The results were reported the other day in an article entitled, “Holding College Chiefs to Their Words”.

It’s a good read, and a helpful tonic to high school juniors who struggle to figure out what topic to choose. You can also read the completed essays on the website.

One of them is even from my former major adviser at Dartmouth, who is now the President of Carleton College in Minnesota.  I gotta read that one!
