Prompt: What are the top five reasons you want to be a Hokie?(250 words)

can you help me to shorter my essay and also correct my grammar. Feel to write your opinion

The first time I notice when I walked in the campus of Virginia Tech was the diversity of the student body. Virginia Tech is the place where students with different backgrounds work together for just one goal, to make a difference in the world. The diversity and unique perspective that each student brings to the campus community makes the place to unique. The variety of clubs and activities makes impossible not to feel welcome in the campus. I feel honor to be part a community where I see that can be a perfect fit not matter my interests there will always be a club with people that can make feel like I belong to the campus.

One of the things that I like the most about Virginia is the wide range of opportunities that the university gives to engineering students such as the abroad program. The global engineering program will give me the privilege to study in a foreign country while working in research projects with professionals in the field that will allow me to apply my knowledge by solving real life problems. Living in a foreign country will help me to develop a unique perspective of the world that would eventually help me to distinguish among other engineers. Finally, the hands on experience that the university gives to freshman engineers makes it perfect to develop my imagination and bring my ideas to live. I found this appealing since I will not only be learning concepts, but also I will be putting them in practice, something essential for Engineers. I truly believe that Virginia Tech is the perfect fit for me.

This should be: The first think I noticed when I toured the campus....

This is an ok essay. To make it stronger, you should fully discuss what the hands on experience that freshmen at this school have. Also, since you are very concerned with diversity, you might want to add a quick blurb about any clubs/organizations that help make the transition to American college life easier for international students. - Admissions Advice Online
