摘要:9月是美国各高校新生入学季,知名美国藤校哥大也迎来了一年一度的新生演讲会,作为哥大校长也迎来了最后一学年的任职,这里也包含了哥大本科录取偏好什么学生的解释,上海托普仕留学Hanna老师就带您一起详细了解下吧!

  近期哥大学校长 Lee C. Bollinger在8月底发表演讲,这里面对的新生来自2026届哥伦比亚学院和工程学院,在这里校长对新生提出了7条建议,从这些建议中,也可以看出哥大本科录取偏好, 包括人格特点、学习态度和价值观等做出了明示,对2023fall哥大申请者而言,无疑可以起到很大的帮助!

  “First, you can make yourself smarter if you work at it.”-“首先,如果你努力的话,你可以让自己变得更聪明。”

  “You may lose track of the discussion, listen to a lecture without following the argument, read a book and feel lost; look at a painting and see nothing special only to find later how others see layers and layers of meaning. And you may get grades below your expectations for yourself. The critical point is that you never feel any of this is due to an unchangeable part of your intellect. If I have learned one thing in life, it is that over time (perhaps over a lifetime) you can change your capacities of your mind for the better. You just have to believe that and to work at it.”

  聪明是哥大本科录取一直都倡导的理念,所以这里不要求申请者是天才,但是需要拥有努力上进的心理,这样聪明也可以在后天进行养成,所以高中学习成绩和AP或者IB课程或者高质量的学术竞赛或者创意发明,都可以让您跃升为聪明人的行列!

  “Second, you must constantly be alert to your bad intellectual impulses.”-你必须时刻警惕自己不良的智力冲动。

  “Thinking well is not easy; indeed, it’s not entirely natural. You have to work at that, and against your instincts…. In the university, we are all about seeing complexity, exploring different ways of seeing things, holding multiple perspectives and possibilities in one’s mind simultaneously so we can examine them carefully, being skeptical, and acknowledging we may be in error. So, if your natural impulse is to simplify everything and to resist complexity, then you will continually struggle.”

  要谨慎小心,更要勇于承认错误,更要全方位看待事情,要勇于突破自我,养成怀疑的心态。所以这也是在后天课外活动中,申请者需要养成的习惯,对于某项课外活动,务必要开放性思考和参与,更要学会从中获得启示。

  “Third, I really encourage you to think big, even unrealistically big.”-鼓励想得远大一些,即使是不切实际的远大。

  “Set big goals for yourself. Let yourself have high aspirations, both for knowledge and for doing things. Let yourself have your own big dreams. (This is one natural impulse I would not discourage.) It adds meaning to our lives, a sense of purpose, and for the most part is relatively harmless. (Depending, of course, on the substance of the dreams!)”

  要对未来充满希望,更要坚定不移的实现目标,所以在这里职业规划成为组成哥大本科申请的重要一部分,所以要有梦想,更要有实现梦想的动力和使命感。

  “Fourth, you need to develop the capacity to be enthralled—enchanted—by greatness.”-需要培养被伟大所吸引的能力

  “We need to develop a genuine respect for great works and accomplishments across the span of humanity (including an appreciation of expertise, something painfully lacking in today’s political culture).”

  在这里,需要学生尊重历史和伟大的作品,对于人文社科类学科而言,学生往往需要对历史作品或者伟大人物保持一定的青睐或者欣赏,所以在这里素养也是不能缺少的品德。

  “Fifth, I urge you to make close friends along this journey of life beginning now.”-在人生的旅途上交朋友,从现在开始

  “I mean the great minds and works you will encounter in your studies. Select a few, those who appeal to something inside you, and live with them; make them part of your daily life; read a page, or a paragraph (or look at an image or hear the sounds or see the actions), and let your mind probe deeper and deeper into their meanings and hear your own thoughts in response. Great human achievements warrant a lifetime of attention.”

  积极融入社区生活,寻找志同道合的朋友,为了同一件事情,同心协力去合作。

  “Sixth, please do not think that smartness is everything in life.”-不要认为聪明就是生活的全部

  “Being a good person, as simple and as complicated as that little statement is, is certainly equally high on our list of human qualities. We try to be that here, as well, but we also know, and you need to bear in mind always, that we are not doing everything here. I would only add that being a good person starts with how we treat each other in our little community, and, as Edmund Burke observed, it radiates out from there to humanity broadly.”

  不要认为学习就是生活的一切,要学会融入周边生活,丰满自己的周边世界

  “Seventh, and last, I urge you to enjoy this period of life you are entering because, in all likelihood, it will never be like this again.”-享受学习生活,从细节做起

  “This unconditional embrace of the life of the mind we nurture here is unique. Nowhere else in the world will you encounter this way of being, certainly to this degree. It is in details that larger world views are often revealed. And for us that detail is the footnote. Everything that is possible to know and understand is our ambition, reason is our method and our guide, and adding just a bit more is our goal. Every step is documented and attributed, and the footnote serves as the foundation. So, whenever you see a footnote, think of the academic culture behind it.”

  培养自己的世界观,更要在细节中进行实施,务必要理性和知识并行。所以推荐信往往成为哥大招生官掌握您是一个怎么样的人具体所在,更可得知您的学习习惯和态度!
