As students of Columbia University,  the admissions office selected us for our passion, our talents, our intellect, and our literacy. A tipster overheard the same conclusion being made outside of Butler.

“Do you know how hard college would be if you couldn’t read? I know that sounds obvious, but just think about it. A teacher made me read out loud in class the other day and I just kept thinking: this would be so hard if I couldn’t read.”

Touché.
