A Piece of Paper with Fancy Gold Script
Here’s the thing about getting a college education: It may not guarantee a lucrative job upon graduating. That is true, especially for nondigital majors. But you will never regret the years spent learning, reading, discovering. When else in your life will you have such opportunity to give priority to the radical act of just thinking? When else will you be not just encouraged but required to ask questions, to read widely, to think hard? "The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks." You know who said that? Albert Einstein. So there.
