See the unseen. Embrace the chances. Risk everyday. Believe in yourself, and that your gifts are implanted in you for a reason. As I walked into the main building of the campus in the Southwest Loop in downtown Chicago, I completely understood that there were no limits to my passion. I am a writer, a dreamer, a creator, and every one of those traits fit right into the vertical campus called Columbia.

It's a smaller school, but everyone that I encountered was brilliant in their own right, simply because they stood out and took risks everyday. They have goals, many of them that are set aside far from the rest of the stereotypical yearning to earn a business or law degree. They find passion and inspiration in the most common places, but places that only artists can envision to open the eyes of others; In the city buildings, the lawn of Millennium Park, and the lake. The students at Columbia reach new heights everyday because they are conquering their fears and facing their ever most desires. They are pushing past boundaries, and understanding that the world is truly their oyster.

The facilities and faculty at Columbia are there for full support. Every teacher and every studio that I walked into made me feel right at home. I was welcomed by dreamers, by artists, by people who are willing to change the world.

This is great. It has a nice flow to it. I like that you made it sound like a poem or rather than a review. I loved it! Great job!
