追教授记 A Wild Professors Chase: On Office Hours

许筱艺 02月22日

哈佛法學院J.D.及自由作家

 

If you were to dive into my iCal or folders, you would be sure to find tons of documents labeled “OH”. It’s not an exclamation, as much as I am always excited about it. Instead, “OH” is my abbreviation for Office Hours, a particularly defining element of my college experience.

 

Somehow, I’ve always had a romanticised picture in my mind of what Office Hours would be like: a cozy afternoon where the sun shines gently into a book-filled office, an erudite scholar sitting behind a wo...

2015年10月22日傍晚,全美顶尖文理学院波莫纳学院(Pomona College)的2200名学生、教授、校友及家长同时起立,用热烈的掌声迎接美国联邦最高法院 (Supreme Court of the United States) 大法官索尼娅·索托马约女士(Sonia Sotomayor)到访该校。

波莫纳学院每年会向被录取的新生推荐一本“大一读物”。新生入学前都会阅读此书,并在开学的第一周与教授和同学共同探讨和分享他们阅读此书的感悟。与此同时,“大一读物”也在校园里向其他学生及老师免费发送,鼓励全校师生阅读并广泛深入讨论。2015年入选的读物正是索尼娅·索托马约...

Scene Two: The 2,200-People Community

 

When you have 2,200 people sitting together in an auditorium, you bring a community together. Sure, out of the 2,200, the percentage of people who know their neighbours at the venue is relatively insignificant. As a liberal arts college that takes pride in our close-knit community and close interactions with faculty members, Pomona has a student population of 1,600. That evening, everyone — Pomona College students, faculty, alumni, family and sta...

Flashbacks

 

Reading Days just prior to Finals’ Week, May. Admittedly, I was in full nerd mode®, hectically studying for my exams at the Romance languages library. That was when an email that excited me for months arrived in my inbox. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor was to visit Pomona College on the 22nd of October this year. Thrilled, I got up immediately to pick up my free copy from the Dean’s office.

 

Each year, Pomona College selects a “first-year book” that the inc...

SETTING: Our Beloved World

CHARACTERS: All the people in it

 

 

Prologue

 

 

Thursday, 3:30 pm. I walked out of my international relations class, trying to put aside the heaviness sparked by the discussion on the Rwanda genocide and other ethnic conflicts. The first floor of Carnegie Hall — that classy building resembling the White House to some degree, and home to the politics and economics departments at Pomona College — was quiet. I slipped into the pair of dark blue heels re...

阳光与书香,挑战与合作-我的大学生活

许筱艺 12月22日

哈佛法學院J.D.及自由作家

 刚刚完成了大学第一个学期的学业,我有许多美好的回忆,也学到了很多。这些回忆绝不仅限于我的宏观经济学、微积分、中级西班牙语以及人类学的研讨课堂。作为美国顶尖文理学院,我的大学提供给学生充分的学术资源及与教授密切交流的机会。综合图书馆资料全面、不同学术领域的小图书馆提供温馨的学习空间、敬业的教授主动每周二晚上九点到十点半(有时会持续到深夜)组织额外的经济学学习小组,听取学生讨论课上所学的知识,同时解答学生的问题。此外,学校也为每一名教授提供一定的资金通过请客的方式,与学生一边共进午餐,一边...

‘Congratulations. The answer is yes!’

 

!!!

 

(Screams, Laughters, and Joyful Tears…)

 

For high school seniors, those five words (especially the first, ‘Congratulations’) from the universities / colleges of their choice may have been appearing in their dreams night after night. As seniors go through the process that is fearfully known as the ‘College Application Cycle’, they may have the following experience on a daily basis. If you are a senior, circle the one(s) that w...

教育乌托邦 Edutopia

许筱艺 11月22日

哈佛法學院J.D.及自由作家

     "Utopia", literally "no place" in Ancient Greek, commonly suggests a perfect zenith. Generations of risk-takers and thinkers, intrigued by the hardship in achieving perfection, have attempted to establish their own utopias with countless philosophical ideas. As idealistic as I may be as a high school student who is inspired by them, I have secretly accepted a daring mission of creating (okay, I mean, "imagining") an education utopia, also known as "Edutopia". Of course, I will just be offe...
