Principia Collegewww.principia.edu Mr. Mattison AVID May 26, 2010
Why I want to go here Reason #1 I prefer a small, private school in a rural setting. Reason #2 I believe that Principia College is right for me because it has the major (foreign languages), that will prepare me for a career as a Foreign Service Officer. Reason #3 Participating in sports is important to me. Principia has 17 sports for 500 students. Consequently, student-athletes can get lots of playing time if they are on the team. Therefore, when I attend Principia I will be able to be a valuable part of the swimming team.
