Millbrook Made: PASSION & BALANCE
Bates College
When I toured Bates, I got the feeling that the community was diverse and full of interesting intellectuals. When I had my interview, my feelings were cemented. I applied ED to Bates and got in. The campus is beautiful, and they offer so many interesting opportunities. I am most excited for my classes and meeting new people. Lewiston, Maine is a town with a lot of service opportunities, and I have signed up for some really interesting classes such as Politics and Performance: On Stage and Screen. I'm happy that I can continue my French language education with a class in French film study.

Millbrook's block schedule, campus atmosphere, and wide range of class choices have definitely prepared me for college. The block schedule allowed me to already have an idea of how to balance homework—especially when my classes only meet two or three times a week. I developed my independence at Millbrook—a perfect springboard for my Bates experience—and I will continue to pursue a wide variety of classes for which I have a passion.
