My parents had this motto that stuck with me ever since I was a child: “you can either relax now and struggle later, or work hard now and relax later.” To me, this indicated that I should work hard in school to make my life in the future slightly easier.

Rather than drab, square buildings, the University of Chicago has many buildings that are rooted in gothic architecture. It feels like you are in a different time period when you walk on campus. In addition, the University of Chicago has the Mansueto Library, one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen.

The student body is comprised of some of the smartest students from around the world, creating one of the most intellectual and diverse group of students among universities. As a student, I would contribute to this community with my cultural background and creative mindset while also developing myself by learning about different students and their lifestyles.

The University of Chicago is the embodiment of everything I had in mind for college: a rigorous curriculum, learning how to think, a refreshing environment to study in, and a dynamic group of students to share it all with. I am very excited to start my path down the University of Chicago and take advantage of all of this. My future at the University of Chicago looks very promising and I cannot wait to become a Phoenix.

Near the end of the movie, actor Matthew McConaughey enters a black hole and gains access to a higher-dimensional world. In this higher-dimensional world, time is represented as a three-dimensional space. McConaughey can move around in this space and access any moment in time in his daughter’s room. At first, I dismissed this type of access to time as purely science fiction; however, after watching a video with physicist Neil deGrasse Tyson explaining the ending of the movie, I realized there was some truth behind it. He explained that time is a dimension similar to the three spatial dimensions. Theoretically, similar to how one is free to move anywhere in the three spatial dimensions, one could move back and forth in the time dimension. This is how McConaughey was able to move freely in time when in the higher-dimensional world. But in the world we live in, humans cannot move around in the time dimension; we are always stuck in the
