The prompt specifies that your lesson should be one that you "want to share with others." So the best responses will include your thoughts about just exactly how you might share this in college.
One way to share your lesson is certainly to tell other people about it.
Here's the prompt: One of the core values of Villanova, as an Augustinian university founded on the teachings of St.
Augustine, is that students and faculty learn from each other.
But lessons are a tricky business in college applications.
Too many students forget to tell the truth and instead mention lessons in an attempt to say something impressive.
The fact that hard work and commitment can help you be successful at something wasn't a concept with which you were familiar before you played soccer?
You didn't realize that cultures and customs in foreign countries were different from those in America until you traveled to Europe? So the first thing you have to do is get over the urge to say something deep and impressive.
As you imagine yourself as a member of the Villanova community, what is one lesson that you have learned in your life that you will want to share with others?
This is the only supplemental essay on the Villanova application, so it's important to make it count.
