Quotes
"How many times have you chickened out?" - Qu Hsueh Ming

"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds." - Albert Einstein

"An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile - hoping it will eat him last." - Sir Winston Churchill

"Affirmative action is something the good don't need and the bad don't deserve" - A wise man

"The men who create power make an indispensable contribution to the Nation's greatness, but the men who question power make a contribution just as indispensable, especially when that questioning is disinterested, for they determine whether we use power or power uses us." - John F. Kennedy

"The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were." - John F. Kennedy

"I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually." - James A. Baldwin

"Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is but a broken winged bird that cannot fly." - Langston Hughes

"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference." - Sir Winston Churchill

"Dreams are true while they last, and do we not live in dreams?" - Alfred Lord Tennyson

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." - John Calvin Coolidge

"We will either find a way or make one." - Hannibal

"Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake." - Napoleon Bonaparte

"For evil to triumph, it is only necessary for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke

"War begins in the minds of men, and it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must first be constructed." - UNESCO Constitution

"The proper study of mankind is man." - Alexander Pope

"My kind of loyalty was loyalty to one's country, not to its institutions or its officeholders. The country is the real thing, the substantial thing, the eternal thing; it is the thing to watch over, and care for, and be loyal to; institutions are extraneous, they are its mere clothing, and clothing can wear out, become ragged, cease to be comfortable, cease to protect the body from winter, disease, and death." - Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens): A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

"Patriotism is to support your country all the time and your government when it deserves it" - Mark Twain

"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man." - George Bernard Shaw

"The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it." - George Bernard Shaw

"Democracy is a system ensuring that the people are governed no better than they deserve." - George Bernard Shaw

"If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all." -- Noam Chomsky

"During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act." - George Orwell

"When the people fear the government, you have tyranny. When the government fears the people, you have freedom." - Thomas Paine

"I sense a learning: that much dumber people than you end up in charge. Look at the way things are. I'm no fucken genius or anything, but these spazzos are in charge of my every twitch. What I'm starting to think is maybe only the dumb are safe in this world, the ones who roam with the herd, without thinking about every little thing. But see me? I have to think about every little fucken thing." - Vernon God Little, Act II

First Semester

ARAB 001B-002B. Introduction to Modern Standard Arabic

Students who start in the 001B-002B sequence must complete 002B to receive credit for 001B.

This intensive introduction to Arabic attempts to develop the four language skills of speaking, writing, listening, and reading. Spoken component will cover both formal and casual forms of speech.

1.5 credits.

BIOL 001. Cellular and Molecular Biology

An introduction to the study of living systems illustrated by examples drawn from cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, neurobiology, and developmental biology.

Writing course.

1 credit.

PHIL 009. First-Year Seminar: Contemporary, Moral, and Political Issues

Our understanding of (or confusions about) freedom, justice, equality, rights, and the objects of moral concern deeply affect how we think about concrete issues that pervade contemporary public life. We will examine how various philosophical positions inform our understanding of these issues—and how they, in turn, lead us to accept, reject, or modify general philosophical positions. Among the issues we'll discuss in the context of broader philosophical positions are the legal enforcement of morality, the limits of free expression, what justice and equality require, and issues in bioethics and the environment.

Writing course.

1 credit

POLS 010B. The Theory and Practice of Socialism in Eurasia

This course traces more than 150 years of socialist political efforts in Europe. Beginning with the revolutions of 1848, we will examine the political circumstances and theories that made revolution possible as well as the conditions that threatened these movements. Students will encounter the Marxist and Christian Socialist movements of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and the many Soviet revolutionary movements after World War I—from Moscow to Munich and from Berlin to Budapest. We will examine the socialist resistance to fascism in Vienna and Spain and trace the development of Western European leftist movements, both communist and social democratic. The last half of the course will compare the socialist welfare systems in Western Europe and attempts to build socialism with a "human face" in Eastern Europe during the 1950s and 1960s. Finally, the course will examine the failures of leftist terrorist organizations and of "realized socialism."

1 credit.

DANC 040. Dance Technique: Modern I

An introduction to basic principles of dance movement: body alignment, coordination, strength and flexibility, and basic locomotion.
