Alumni Voice
The value of a liberal arts degree

"Knowing how to write decently, knowing how to think critically, how to ask the right questions, to understand systems, to look for holes, to have a low threshold for indignation – that's the kind of stuff that comes from having a liberal arts degree." 

—Freelance journalist Makana Eyre '12
