College for me was a starting point - an intellectual and spiritual awakening to a life of asking questions, looking for answers, and seeking direction. It was through the portal of higher education - this “wardrobe” if you will - that I entered a world of adventure, whereby, I began to turn over every stone in the pursuit of something trustworthy and immutable; something true and absolute; something worthy of my commitment and my allegiance.
Along the way I discovered that a classical liberal arts education is one that, in its purest form, pursues all questions with a paradoxical balance of confidence and humility.
Our confidence is in the truth. It is bigger than any one person, one group, or one government. It is an objective and attainable reality. It is permanent and enduring. It is not subject to the ebb and flow of personal opinion or political power . . .
