2017-2018 [+]

  • 写文书 The Honor System has been a hallmark of the Washington and Lee experience for well over a century. Exclusively governed by the W&L student body, the system exemplifies the trust and integrity that distinguish the campus at large. Reflect on a time when you have been entrusted with a significant responsibility. How did you earn it? More important, how did you respond?
  • 写文书 Washington and Lee University's "standards include civility. When free and equal people with different backgrounds and perspectives come together, disagreement is inevitable. In that contentious swirl of competing views, assertiveness is called for, but so, too, is reticence. You have to develop the courage of your convictions while entertaining the possibility you could be wrong. And you have to resist the temptation to demonize those who disagree with you as morally deficient just because they may not share your views." (Kenneth Ruscio '76, current President of Washington and Lee University). Reflect on a time when your stance on an issue changed as a result of civil discourse.
  • 写文书 Consider the meaning of "fair," especially how the term can be misused. What impact does fairness---perceived or actual---have in society and your life? Has fairness ever helped or hurt you personally? At what cost or benefit to you or others?
  • 写文书 "To promote literature in this rising empire and to encourage the arts, have ever been amongst the warmest wishes of my heart." (George Washington, 1798, first president of the United States and first major benefactor of Washington and Lee University). Describe a work of art that has influenced you, and discuss the impact it has had on you.
  • 写文书 "What I want to hear after a Spring Term course is that 'This class changed my life.' " (Marc Conner, Ballengee Professor of English and Interim Provost). W&L's Spring Term is a four week, intensive experience during which students take only one course, allowing for undivided attention to the subject matter. Spring Term courses are known for innovative pedagogy, interdisciplinary scholarship, travel, and field work in diverse settings. If you could design a Spring Term course, what would you propose, and why would you choose to pursue that topic?
  • 写文书 Non incautus futuri (not unmindful of the future) is a telling motto for the country's ninth oldest higher education institution. In your opinion, what should W&L be most mindful about in preparing you for the future?

翻译:

  • 荣誉体系成为华盛顿与李大学教育体验的标志已经一个多世纪了。在学生群体完全自治的基础上,这一体系凸显出信任和正直,让校园与众不同。回想一个你曾被委以重任的时刻。你是怎样取得这种信任的?更重要的是,你是如何回报这种信任的?
  • 华盛顿与李大学的“规范包括礼貌。当自由平等的人们带着不同的背景和观点聚在一起的时候,冲突是不可避免的。当相左的观点交锋时,坚持立场是必要的,但是克制也是必不可少的。你应当在鼓起勇气坚定信念的同时,也考虑到自己有可能是错的。而且你应该严禁自己只因为别人不愿意分享你的观点,就站在道德制高点上去妖魔化不赞同你观点的人。” (Kenneth Ruscio,76届校友,现任校长) 回想一个你因为一场论战而改变立场的时刻。
  • 考虑一下“公平”的含义,尤其是这个术语可能被滥用的一些场景。在社会上和你生活中,感觉上的或事实上的公平有什么影响?公平可曾在个人角度帮助或伤害过你?这给你或他人带来了何种代价或好处?
  • “在这个崛起的国度倡导文艺一直是我心中最热忱的愿望之一。”(乔治·华盛顿,1798,美国第一任总统及我校第一位主要的赞助者)描述一个影响你的艺术作品,并讨论这种影响。
  • “我希望在春季学期结束时听到的话是——这堂课改变了我的人生”(Marc Conner,英语教授以及临时教务长)华盛顿与李的春季学期持续四周,这种密集学习的体验让学生全情投入一门课程。春季学期的课程以创新的教学方法、跨学科的学术追求、旅行以及多样的实地考察而闻名。如果让你设计一个春季课程,你有什么计划?为什么你会选择这个课题?
  • “心怀未来”是华盛顿与李大学(美国第九古老的高等学府)的响亮校训。在你看来,我校在预备你的未来时应该关注什么?

  • "Never do a wrong thing to make a friend or to keep one." (Robert E. Lee, President of then-Washington College, 1865-1870) Discuss a time when you were tempted to do a wrong thing or when you actually did a wrong thing. What was your motivation? What lessons did you draw from this experience? Do you believe that there is always dishonor in doing a wrong thing? Why or why not?
  • "I have in mind a Washington and Lee graduate entering the arena of public debate. Off to one side is a cacophony of voices, loud and harsh. On the other side are the silent ones, wracked by self-doubt, who avoid the great issues of our time. It would be easy to gravitate to one or the other. I wish for you a more difficult life, somewhere in the complicated center, where the courage of your convictions blends with humility and respect for others." (Kenneth Ruscio '76, current President of Washington and Lee University) Discuss your engagement in an issue that faces your school, community or another group of which you are a part.
  • Why does the United States have among the highest rates of poverty and income inequality of any developed nation, and what, if anything, can and should we do to reduce the prevalence of these problems in our country?

翻译:

  • “绝不要为了交朋友或者保持友谊而去做错误的事。” (罗伯特·E·李,我校前身华盛顿大学校长,1865-1870) 谈谈你曾受到诱惑或确实犯了错的一刻。你的动机是什么?学到了什么教训?你认为做错事总是丢脸的么?无论是或否,都请解释。
  • “我想到的是当一个华盛顿与李大学毕业生步入公众辩论的角斗场:一边人声嘈杂,言语尖刻;一边沉默安静,自信全无,逃避着我们这个时代的大问题。与这两边的任何一方沆瀣一气都很容易,但我却希望你们能挑战更艰难的生活,在混沌的中心将自己的决心与对他人的谦卑和尊重融为一体。” (肯尼斯·卢梭,76级,现任校长) 谈谈你参与的一个问题,在其中你需要面对你的学校、社区或其他你身处的组织。
  • 为什么美国在发达国家中有极高的贫困率和收入不平等?如果我们能做一些事来改变我国的这些泛滥的问题,会是什么呢?
