Reading for enjoyment: it’s a novel (pardon the pun!) idea on a college campus, where many students view the activity as a task—one that’s associated with study and the classroom. Yet reading as a pleasurable act, with no strings attached, is what Carl Neureuther, a 1940 graduate of the Washington University School of Business, hoped to promote among students when he set up an endowed book fund for the WU Libraries. Established in 1987, the fund provides the resources for the annual Neureuther Student Book Collection Essay Competition.
Welcome to the greatest free collection of College Application Essays available anywhere. We have over 1,500 essays that students successfully used to gain admission to a wide variety of schools – everything from Ivy League institutions to Community Colleges.
