Was there a faculty member who launched your interest in something you love, who set you on a path that has made the difference in your life? Was there a class that changed your world? A roommate or someone in one of your classes who kept you talking all night about something that changed the way you thought about the world? An experience in an extracurricular activity that sparked an unexpected passion? Or maybe just good old passion for someone else who rocked your world (and maybe still does)?
