Sample College Essay – Letter to my Future Roommate

March 8, 2012

Dear Future Roommate,

I would first like to tell you how excited I am to meet you and get to know you. I have been looking forward to the college experience for most of my life and you have a lot to do with what makes going away to college so endearing. I love meeting new people and figuring out what they like and dislike. Although we may not know each other now, I am confident that we will become very good friends by the end of the first year. Prior to meeting each other, however, I would like to tell you a few things you can expect when we do.

The most important thing about me is my faith in God. Without my relationship with God I would be an entirely different person in regards to how I carry myself and how I treat others. I feel that my purpose is to seek and save the lost and the journey that I am on in college will lead me to a career that allows me to do so.

This leads me to the second most important aspect of myself, music. Music is my passion and my creative outlet. I love every facet of music, from listening to writing and leading. I am a singer and I lead worship at my
church for the middle and high school services. The fact that I get to teach students how to worship and what it looks like blows my mind. I am so appreciative for the opportunity to display what it means to love Jesus through music. I will continue to do this throughout college and I hope to be involved in the music department at the school.

Additionally, I would be very interested in majoring in worship leadership if God confirms that to be my calling. I am also very intrigued by teaching high school students in the English department. I love to read and write and could be very happy teaching others.

I hope this letter allowed you to get a better grasp on myself as a person. I cannot wait to meet you and start the college journey together!
