Walking past the Tightrope Walker sculpture facing Jerome Greene Hall, I noticed a group of students ardently bickering. My inquisitive nature demanded that I hone in. The dance major student admired the sculptures’ theme of movement through its distorted figure; the future architect remarked on its battered bronze skin; the art student noted the sculpture’s juxtaposition of realism and abstraction. Noticing that I was eavesdropping, they asked me, “What’s your take?” In a community of irrepressible learners, Columbia's...

What is the most significant challenge that society faces today? (50 word limit) Apathy. Maybe it's our Darwinian nature that causes us to lack compassion toward our fellow beings, but as a society, this psychological starvation evolves into the desensitization of humans to problems that do not affect us. Humans are capable of many things, but without empathy there is no humanity. Words entered: 49 How did you spend your last two summers?
