George washington university is a good match for me because it is such a well-rounded campus.<~~You need to clarify what that phrasing means. I like to consider myself the same kind of student. I have been academically successful in high school, having taken the most challenging classes. I am an active learner, and I enjoy participating in class discussions. I have also been very involved with service<~~be specific; what, exactly? to my community, which is an important part of the Lehigh mission. Finally, (I think) I am a fun** person. I am a musician, writer, athlete, and socially conscious student. I would be thrilled to become a member of this campus community.

**Questionable use of the word "fun" -- "USAGE NOTE The use of fun as an attributive adjective, as in a fun time, a fun place, probably originated in a playful reanalysis of the use of the word in sentences such as It is fun to ski, where fun has the syntactic function of adjectives such as amusing or enjoyable. The usage became popular in the 1950s and 1960s, though there is some evidence to suggest that it has 19th-century antecedents, but it can still raise eyebrows among traditionalists. The day may come when this usage is entirely unremarkable, but writers may want to avoid it in more formal contexts."
