Why Am I in College?

Tuesday, Jul. 5, 2011

There's an ethical dimension to the question many incoming freshmen are asking themselves: Why am I going to college?  Is it because I have a sense of purpose or because it's just the thing people do after high school. 

This week's Big Q case study asks students to look at the meaning of a college education.  The Big Q is a social media campaign to engage undergraduates in dialog about the ethical issues in their own lives.
