ECU Honors Program Application for Incoming First-Year Students

In the blank space above, please paste in a brief essay (2-page minimum, typed) that considers the question: “What should the goal of human life be?” Your challenge is to respond to the question in a memorable way—offering something a college-educated reader might gain from reading and might recommend to others in turn. To achieve this goal, you should seek to analyze the subject with some intellectual rigor, explore multiple possibilities, and go beyond “top of the head” general knowledge. Be sure to synthesize your content clearly and coherently, skillfully integrating relevant evidence.
