Princeton Supplement Essay: How You Have Spent the Last Two Summers



Please tell us how you have spent the last two summers (or vacations between school years), including any jobs you have held. (About 150 words)

I have spent my last two summers in pretty much the same fashion. Every year, early on in our summer break, my sisters and I participate in the 4-H Exploration Days festivities held at Michigan State University. After that, we start to attend the summer program for our Upward Bound charter at Monroe County Community College. In the middle of this, I take a few days off to go to wrestling camp and learn new skills. My wrestling team even competed in summer duals in order to get a competitive edge for the school year. Our summer duals and UB summer program end in August, where now my sisters and I enter our 4-H projects into the county fair. So this summer routine eats up most of my free time, but I rather enjoy having it this way.
