What are the most valuable skills you gained from your Arts & Sciences education? The most valuable skill Cornell has provided me is the understanding that learning is a process of questioning. You have to ask good questions, piercing questions, questions that get at the root of the issue you're trying to unpack and understand. This means denaturalizing received wisdom and so-called common sense. 'Why' is never a bad word.
