Applicants should choose one topic from the list below. Please note that The Common Application provides different essay prompts than the FSU and The Coalition applications.

Has there been a time when you've had a long-cherished or accepted belief challenged? How did you respond? How did the challenge affect your beliefs?
What is the hardest part of being a student now? What's the best part? What advice would you give a younger sibling or friend (assuming they would listen to you)?
