Update! The New Penn State Schreyer Honor College Essays for 2019-20

Schreyer Honors has three new supplements, with an 800 max word-count. Let's take a look!

  • Describe a typical day in your life in 2050. Consider what your professional life will look like, what technologies you might use, and how you will interact with your personal network (friends, family, etc.) and the world at large.
  • Describe a situation in which you moved outside your comfort zone, interacting with people whose experiences and/or beliefs are different from your own.  What was your initial response and how did you adapt? Walk us through the situation and explain what impact it had on you.
  • "A picture is worth a thousand words" refers to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single picture. If you could submit a selfie from anywhere in the world that would tell us about your beliefs and passion, where would you take this photo? What insight would this photo provide about you?
