这是一个简单的问题, one posed by poet Walt Whitman in his American epic “Song of Myself,"然而, for such a small question, there are a number of different ways to answer. Whether the grass is a strange hieroglyphic whose message is yet to be to be deciphered, a botanical form of life photosynthesizing sunlight into energy, a representation of the inner life of the self, or a link to the whole of creation depends on your perspective, 你的气质, your orientation to the world, 这可能很有创意, 哲学, 科学, 或精神, or you might inhabit multiple perspectives dancing between them over time. 

就像惠特曼的诗, the School of 文科 and 科学 at 大学交流 will provide you with a variety of perspectives, a variety of ways of knowing and thinking. Whether you choose to study biology, 历史, 文学, 哲学, 心理学, 拉美裔研究, or one of our other disciplines, it will provide you with distinctive and innovative educational experiences as you gain knowledge and develop skillsets to become an engaged, adaptable citizen in an ever-changing and increasingly interconnected world. Our programs will introduce you to different approaches to the questions confronting us in the increasingly complicated landscape of professional and personal opportunity that awaits you.
