Vassar College "Your Space" help? I don't know what to do.

<p>I know what the space is for, but i'd like to know examples of what some people have put in their "Your Space"? I'm not sure if I should write something like an essay, or include some photography i've done, I don't know what to put in.</p>

<p>I'm not majoring in art, photography, or drama or anything like that. I'm from France and have traveled all through Europe. Should I do something with that?</p>


<p>P.S: Just realized I should probably post in the Vassar College area...sorry.</p>

<p>I was wondering this as well</p>

<p>I put some poetry I wrote. I'd say...just put anything that defines you or something you're passionate about.</p>

<p>I was going to make a video about why I wanted to go there and kind of back it up with things about myself that I wasn't to talk about in my essay.</p>

<p>I think go with what feels to be more an expression of you. Whether it be abstractly or literally so. I was wondering...if we're submitting the Common App and Supplement online...can we still send in a hard copy of something for Your Space?</p>

<p>If my commonapp essay speaks briefly of my experience living in Europe, would it be too much to make a video about something like "My life in Europe, things that made me happy" with a bunch of pictures and stuff?</p>

<p>@Knsqld, yes. I believe it would be best to also provide a hard copy of a submission. </p>

<p>@Nina2332, I think that would be a great idea, just make sure it's not too similar to the essay. Focus more so on other aspects and quirks about yourself that Vassar might find interesting about you.</p>

<p>Thanks for the advice! Yes i'll try to incorporate personal stuff about me, like my habits, things I love, etc. I hope it will turn out good!</p>

<p>could I include a piece of creative writing I wrote a year ago? (it's a short story) ...other than that, the only idea I can think of is just including another essay</p>

<p>^ I actually think that's a good idea born2dance94! :)</p>

<p>thanks :) maybe I'll go with that</p>

<p>For those of you making videos, you can see previous years' examples on YouTube.</p>

<p>Don't stress too much about it. I did not put anything there. During the info session, they really emphasized that it is not mandatory, that people with a Your Space get admitted at the same rate as those without, etc.</p>

<p>I understand that yes, but I felt the need and desire to add something more personal about me. I finished the video after 6hours, hopefully they'll like it :)</p>

<p>thank you popcharlie93 :)</p>
