I’ve written a primer for people buying a digital SLR camera system and would like feedback on how this could be improved before linking it from my main site. Please comment! Thanks in advance.Full post, including comments
The students whom I met during a brief stop at University of Wisconsin in Madison seemed to have chosen majors that aren’t very useful vocationally. My friends who teach liberal arts at high-tuition schools in the Boston area report that their students are very focussed on getting into a high-paying career with an MBA or a law degree. Two girls at U. of W. who stopped me to ask about Alex seemed like good examples of what happens when tuition is only around $3000/semester (in-state). One was majoring in philosophy and headed for a Ph.D. program in philosophy. The other was in women’s studies and headed for graduate school at UCLA in women’s studies.
Were these a statistical anomaly or is there a correlation between low tuition and students pursuing the intellectual life?Full post, including comments
