- Optional: St. Agnes is excited to partner with ZeeMee, a free service that helps students bring their application to life. By creating a ZeeMee page, a student is able to convey their unique personality as well as highlight specific interests and achievements. We are committed to learning as much about each of our applicants as possible and these student created pages allow us additional insight into the wonderful qualities our applicants possess. You’re the best one to tell us about yourself. Therefore, we are looking for self-made videos featuring just you and your unique personality. Please go to ZeeMee.com to create your page, then paste your link into the “ZeeMee link” field located at the end of our application. ZeeMee pages can be sent after the application has been submitted by emailing the link to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 1, 2017.
