Where can I find essay prompts on college websites?

QUESTION
Where can I find essay prompts on college websites?
Is it easy for you guys to find?

I found UT Austin & Texas A&M topics.
but when i went to the Baylor website, i could not find them.
i at first thought Baylor didn’t require essays, but collegeboard says essays are VERY important.
and PEPPERDINE and BOSTON university too!!!!
Boston university says essays are important and even has a video about it but i dont actually see the essay prompts.
WHY DO COLLEGE WEBSITES HAVE TO HIDE ESSY PROMPTS?
i’ve been trying to find, and i just got really annoyed.

ANSWER
I’d advise just going on the CommonApp website. BU has their essay topics after you login to your app on the CommonApp.

Same thing for Pepperdine

Pepperdine:
Pepperdine’s scholarly community equips students with a liberal arts education anchored in Christian values. Our commitment to integrating faith and learning challenges our students to understand that the gift of knowledge ultimately calls for a life of service. With this commitment in mind, please respond:

Tell us how the integration of faith and learning can prepare you for a life of service, and discuss the impact service-learning can have on the renewing of your mind, spirit, and community.

BU:In an essay of no more than 500 words, please select three words that describe you best and tell us how you will use these qualities/characteristics to contribute fully to the BU community.

Baylor:

Sorry, you need to make an account to see baylor’s app question.

For BU / Pepperdine, those are the CommonApp supplemental essays, so you must complete the CommonApp essay as well as their supplemental essays.
