400-800 Word Essay
Respond to one of the following prompts. No essay topic is preferred over another.

2a. The Booth Honors Program emphasizes interdisciplinary classes and collaboration. For that reason, we prefer to offer upper-level classes that address a specific subject (extinction or Halloween, for instance) from different, complementary disciplinary perspectives (for instance biology, geology, and environmental science for an extinction class or art, history, literature, and folklore/popular culture for a Halloween class). Please discuss how an interdisciplinary perspective could contribute to solving problems and/or answering questions that interest you. If you like, suggest a class that would benefit from such an interdisciplinary approach and explain why.

2b. What assignment in high school wasted your time more than any other? Why? How would you improve it?

2c. Explain how and why your life has been significantly influenced by a person (living or dead), an event or by a particular book.
