The Wall Street Journal asked some university presidents to write essays answering one of the admission application questions for their schools.
Our own Michael Roth was among them, answering the question “Indicate a person who has had a significant influence on you, and describe that influence“.
He wrote about his older brother, who died at the age of 5 before Roth was born. Read the essay here.
Roth also wrote an op-ed in the Boston Globe last week about how the campus crisis in the wake of last month’s shooting brought out the helicopter parent in him.
