college supplement essay help..how long?

QUESTION
college supplement essay help..how long?
im applying to pitzer…and the prompt is: Founded in 1963, Pitzer College was built upon four core values that reimagine the purpose of a college education in a progressively changing world. These values are social responsibility, intercultural understanding, interdisciplinary learning and
student autonomy. Almost 50 years later, our students feel that our founding values help prepare them to address the issues of their time. How do you feel these values will help you find solutions to the evolving challenges of your generation?

what in the world do i write..i have an idea but idk if im going off the wrong limb
also they give you a box to write in…do i just try to completley fill it?
how many words should it be?

ANSWER
Definitely fill at least 3/4 of the box.

If you have an english teacher/ a writing lab/ any other connection to someone who would be a good proof reader- USE IT.

Try rewriting the prompt in more common language so it doesn’t seem so daunting.

They’re asking you to explain how their values will continue to be important in your generation. I would write down each value and think about how it pertains to the future…

Social responsibility is about ethics- for individuals, business, the environment…

and so on. Then collect your best ideas and form the essay.
