Television is a funny medium. It brings us together through shared viewing experiences, and it isolates us in a pool of light in a darkened room. We look to the ubiquitous box for information, forgetting that what we see is produced and edited to fit a format. What we receive is someone’s creation.
In a series of meetings I have had last year with the larger Grinnell family — including open office hours, lunches with faculty and administrators, and conversations with students — the single most popular question has been some variation of “What is the College doing about environmental and sustainability issues?”
Our lodging is at the far end of Nanjing University campus. The campus is divided into the dormitory area for the students (and we live in this part of campus) and the academic and teaching area. Hankou Road runs through the middle of campus and divides the two sections. Several times a day we walk through the dorms and see the students going about their daily lives.

My college counselor advised me to at least look into it.
