转载 2015-06-04 11:23:06

以“不寻常”而著称的芝加哥大学申请论文的题目今天出炉了。我之认识芝大,是因为它的大学申请Essay的“不寻常”而深深地吸引了我。每年的题目,我都非常欣赏它的深度以及寓意。通过文章,体现出学生的个人特征、品味以及志向,或者学生想让别人了解他/她的内容。

每年从大一新生里征集题目。大一新生们总算是多年媳妇熬成婆,也会使尽脑汁来难一难未来的学弟学妹。大学从收到几百道题当中选出几题,作为下一届的大学申请essay。

同学们认真看看以下的题目,有何想法,欢迎你来信跟我谈谈。​

The University of Chicago has long been renowned for its provocative essay questions. We think of them as an opportunity for students to tell us about themselves, their tastes, and their ambitions. They can be approached with utter seriousness, complete fancy, or something in between.

Each year we email newly admitted and current College students and ask them for essay topics. We receive several hundred responses, many of which are eloquent, intriguing, or downright wacky.

As you can see by the attributions, some of the questions below were inspired by submissions by your peers.

芝加哥大学英语:The University of Chicago)是一所位于美国伊利诺伊州芝加哥的私立研究型大学。该大学包括本科学院以及由4个系、6所职业学院和1所继续教育学院组成的各种研究生项目和跨学科委员会。芝加哥大学有约5000名本科生和10,000名研究生。芝大是世界上最负盛名的大学之一,根据2015年US News的排名为全美综合排第四,世界排名第九的大学。有89位教师和校友曾获诺贝尔奖,为美国大学中最多。2位校友曾获图灵奖,12位教授荣获过国家科学奖章,现任教授中有超过60位国家科学院、国家工程院和国家医学科学院院士。

自1969年诺贝尔经济学颁奖以来,截止到2011年,共有25名经济学奖获奖者与这所学校有关。美联社说,这所大学之所以经济学人才辈出,是因为它能吸引并留住已有或未来的经济学明星。这里的经济学者敢于大胆挑战当前流行的经济学理论,学校也鼓励学者独立创新。

在芝加哥大学第五任校长罗伯特·哈群斯在任的24年里,芝加哥大学经历了许多重大变革。哈群斯提出的教育宗旨在防止学术课程和职业课程过分专门化的“芝加哥计划”,对其他美国大学的本科教育计划产生了巨大影响。哈群斯建立了沿用至今的本科生核心课程计划(Common Core),并将研究学院重组为现在的四个学部。

进入21世纪,芝加哥大学启动了数个耗资百万美元的扩建计划。 2008年,大卫·G·布斯向芝加哥商学院一次性捐助3亿美元,这是迄今为止芝加哥大学得到的最大一笔捐款,也是有史以来任何一所商学院得到的最大捐款。

2009年以来,一项耗资二十亿美元的计划使芝大校园进一步扩展,其中包括Palevsky南校区宿舍楼,杰拉尔德拉特纳田径中心,一所新医院以及一座新的科学大楼即将揭幕。2011年以来,重大建设项目包括一座十层的医学研究中心,儒勒·格温纳普生物医学发现中心,其进一步增强了芝加哥大学医学中心。(以上介绍摘自维基百科)
