I am from a very small town with some very small-town views on things. Which is fine. But coming here, you learn a different way to think and to process things. That way maybe you can go out, or even back home, and share what you’ve learned. – Jessica Root, Class of 2012
Philosophy is more than just sitting and thinking. It’s the ability to critically analyze information and then apply that knowledge to deepen your understanding of the subject. It doesn’t matter if the subject is Biology, English, or whatever. The ability to think deeply and formulate thoughts and opinions is always attractive.
