In a well-considered essay, examine the claim made below by Newman. Evaluate its compatibility with your own views regarding the proper goals and aims of a college education. Justify your answer with experiences from your own life and/or from pertinent texts, historical figures, and contemporary events. Newman says the following about liberal education: "It is a great point then to enlarge the range of studies which a University professes, even for the sake of the students; and, though they cannot pursue every subject which is open to them, they will be the gainers by living among those and under those who represent the whole circle. . . . They learn to respect, to consult, to aid each other. . . . [They] apprehend the great outlines of knowledge, the principles on which it rests, the scale of its parts, its lights and its shades, its great points and its little . . . . Hence it is that [their] education is called “Liberal.” A habit of mind is formed which lasts through life, of which the attributes are, freedom, equitableness, calmness, moderation, and wisdom." --John Henry Newman
