How should I approach this topic?

I just read the Bates supplement essay question:

"How will you, with your life experiences, contribute to the vitality of Bates?"

How should this be written? Whats the approach? How do I link my life experiences with Bates vitality? Any examples? Please help!!!

    One way of approaching the question would be to think about how you contribute to the vitality of your high school community, then "port" the results to what you know of the Bates community. What makes you successful and involved where you are? How would that translate to where you are going?
