Essay Questions
1. Some say social media dulls our discourse because it limits our communications and does not allow room for expressing deep or complex ideas. We challenge you to defy these skeptics by describing yourself as fully and accurately as possible in the 140-character limit of a tweet.

2. Answer ONE of these three questions:

1. Wislawa Szymborska, Polish poet and essayist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature said, “You can find the entire cosmos lurking in its least remarkable objects.” Help us see something ordinary in an extraordinary light. 

2. “This is what history consists of. It’s the sum total of all the things they aren’t telling us,” wrote Don DeLillo in Libra.  What is history, who are “they,” and what aren’t they telling us?

3. What invention would the world be better off without and why?
