Should it start with the word "the"??
The Connections Program in Wheaton College interests me.
It sounds like this program is an inspired integration of various subjects. I think you should not list the many things you will experience and appreciate; instead of talking about the Mona Lisa and the structure of DNA, and other random things, find one specific thing to say.
An essay is a whole block of text dedicated to conveying one theme or truth. Essays often convey multiple truths, but for your essay you should choose one memorable one.
For example, you can explain why this program, an inspired, creative blend of courses, is better than some other programs you might have considered, and the criteria that make it better can come from your clear plan for the future. Make a presentation that shows how this program is the one that best resonates with you.
It is easy to imagine how Wheaton will help me work out my potential through learning, reflecting and growing.
What I mean is, instead of saying general things eloquently, like this, say some specific things that support a single, overarching theme.
I hope this is helpful! It is not necessarily the best idea, but it is the best idea I can come up with to make this general content more poignant.
