Dean Snyder answered Brug
mann by defining college as a
"society of scholars, not stu

for college graduates in business
today as proving the worth of a

meet a suitable mate.
Dr. Knowles stated, "Most stu

cheating than thinking". He then
accused colleges of not knowing
where they want students to go
and students of not knowing where
they are going. He accused profes
sors of being unintelligible three
hours a week and invisible the rest
of the time.
Professor Knoll closed the de

individuals duty to decide on his
goals. "The college cannot require;
it can only offer and persuade,"
